minnesota rallies for the people of egypt

…or, more correctly, Egyptian-Minnesotans and some of their non egyptian spouses rally for Egypt.  Despite the fact that the group was largely tied to Egypt, it was quite a success.  All major Twin Cities news outlets were there, and we’ve gotten play everywhere.  And, equally as exciting, my sign made 2 news casts – KSTP and WCCO.

Br. Samir, a well respected member of the community, himself a spouse of an Egyptian (he’s a lebanese convert to islam, his wife is egyptian), gave the statement and laid out for the media what the demands of the Egyptian people were.

And now, an onlinerihla first, a picture of moi, UmmS, at the rally:

Thrilling no?
