[liberationtech] The seeds of change - a movement in the making for year (with cross-border assistance)

There has been a lot of talk about the spontaneous uprising in Egypt, thanks to Facebook and Twitter.  As usual, there is more to the story and a history of some years of planning and strategizing, cross-border collaboration, as well as smart use of tactics and tools.  A little bit of history of the April 6th movement in Egypt is in this Al Jazeera video http://english.aljazeera.net/programmes/peopleandpower/2011/02/201128145549829916.html (aired prior to Mubarak's ouster), and in this NYT article that picks up on the reporting of Al Jazeera: http://bit.ly/eFhag2.  Will be interesting to see whether Egyptian activists will now helping movements in other countries plan non-violent resistance, activist leadership, and the long road towards democratic change. 

Best,
