Thurs, 4/14, Boston Speaking Tour, "Eyewitness to Revolution: Report back from Egypt" 
The
 eyes of the world are on the Arab Spring: the wave of protests and 
revolutions sweeping the Middle East and North Africa. The revolution in
 Egypt, which shook the world and toppled the corrupt, brutal, and 
US-backed Hosni Mubarak dictatorship, is especially inspiring and 
continuing.Egyptian socialist, activist, and journalist AHMED SHAWKI was in Cairo at the height of the mass occupation of Tahrir Square. He wrote for Socialist Worker and the International Socialist Review
 about the revolution -- the struggles of workers, the takeovers of 
neighborhoods by their residents, and the transformations of ordinary 
people as they took their lives and their society into their own hands. 



On Thursday, April 14th, Ahmed will be speaking at UMass-Boston in the afternoon, and Jamaica Plain in the evening.

Sponsored by the International Socialist Organization - Boston.
