Please forward widely:
Thurs, 4/14, Boston Speaking Tour, "Eyewitness to Revolution: Report back
from Egypt"<http://www.bostonsocialism.org/2011/04/thurs-414-boston-speaking-tour.html>

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* <http://socialistworker.org/featured/witness-to-revolution> and the
*International Socialist
Review*<http://www.isreview.org/issues/76/feat-egyptchronicle.shtml>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.
