- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
At the behest of the U.S., the Egyptian govt. has partnered up with Israel to enforce a continuous apartheid upon Palestine - effectively locking in over 2.3 million Palestinians in a massive "open-air" prison. Plus, Mubarak uses HAMAS as an excuse for not allowing ANY supplies - food, medicine, diapers, etc. - to cross the Egyptian border over to Palestine... a so-called "peace agreement". This is but one of many grievances the people of the Arab world are expressing right now. And it was made clear in the WiKiLeaks cables (to any who hadn't already known) that the "leaders" of these Arab countries - mostly backed by the U.S. - don't represent the people of these countries.
I could only wish that the American govt. would be so reckless as to shut down the internet here. Infact, i wish they'd shut down all cable service & shopping malls too - seems like that's the only thing that'll get people out in the streets in massive numbers! Hell knows WE have our own long list of grievances, plus, we're very long over-due for a healthy revolt, anyways.
