Talkin' 'bout a revolution

For those who’ve been as gripped by events in Egypt as I have, here’s a terrific mini-documentary from Al-Jazeera about the April 6th student movement. They use the internet to build up resistance to the Mubarak regime, trained by the Serbian OTPOR movement that led the anti-Milosovic popular uprising. Though the contexts are extremely different, I can’t help but be reminded of The Battle of Algiers – fantastic film that’s a must-see if you haven’t caught it yet.
