What began as a "day of rage" to protest the death of Khaled Saed, who was killed while in police custody, has blown up into a nationwide series of street demonstrations against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Police have been beating and arresting citizens as well as targeting journalists, and the Egyptian government is doing its best to prevent demonstrators from communicating with each other and the outside world.
On one side, we see a president determined to hold on to power. On the other, a citizenry that is tired of unemployment, poverty, and a lack of personal freedom.
