Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, has resigned from his post, handing over power to the armed forces and ending a 30-year grip on the largest Arab nation.
Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, announced in a televised address on Friday that the president was "waiving" his office, and had handed over authority to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.
Suleiman's short statement was received with a roar of approval and by celebratory chanting and flag-waving from a crowd of hundreds of thousands in Cairo's Tahrir Square, as well as by other pro-democracy campaigners who attending protests across the country.

Mubarak May Step Down Today

In an interview with CNN minutes ago, Dr. Hossam Badrawy, the secretary-general of Egypt's ruling National Democratic Party, confirmed that President Hosni Mubarak is currently discussing the possibility of transferring power to his vice president, Omar Suleiman.

More Photos from "Art In Response"

Howdy All,

 If you missed the show this past Friday, then woe to you, was awesome. Thank you all for attending. You helped make this event spectacular! Not to shabby for an idea that was only a week and a half old at show time, if I say so myself. Here are some images I took of the event:

P.S. -

I got some great pics from the Pro-Egypt rally held Saturday

It was a beautiful thing... 

Stay tuned for more announcements, entry calls, and events

Solidarity Demonstration and the Art in Response Show

Wow, so much to report. First of all, a word from Paul Garner on the solidarity demonstration held this saturday: 

"Saturday February 5th, 2011, as the popular uprisings in Egypt and across the Arab world continue, we stood in solidarity with the Egyptian people at the intersection of Poplar and Highland. Thanks to the swift co-operation and organization of The Mid-south Peace and Justice Center, Radical-Arts-Memphis and the Memphis SP, there was a huge turnout-I’d say at least 50 or 60 total, which included many members of the local Arab community who brought HUGE signs! We got there at around 12:00 noon and were there in force til almost three o clock. We got coverage from the local media and a huge show of support from passing traffic. It was encouraging and well, bad-ass to see so many different people come out and let the community know that this is something they should be aware of, that as global citizens, we cannot ignore the collective struggle of our brothers and sisters. 
I’d like to thank everyone who was able to be a part of the Rally on Saturday and encourage others to get involved….There’s some strong winds beginnin' to blow in Memphis!

More Good Things To Come
-Paul Garner"

and here's some photos: 

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the Art in Response show! The show was a huge success, we had a great crowd, good conversations, and an awesome buffet of chips (ha). We'll be having more events soon-a Radical Arts Memphis meeting, a screening and another art show are in the works. so stay tuned!
