Protest supporting #Tahrir from Zuccotti park #OWS

Today: 3:00pm until 6:00pm

The tax money of the 99% in the US supports the violent suppression of Egypt’s 99%. The Egyptians courageously taking to the streets to demand an end to the military regime face a constant barrage of toxic, sometimes lethal, chemical weapons–notably CS gas (tear gas)–that are “Made in the USA.”

This violation of basic freedom is not acceptable. This is not how we want our tax money to go to Egypt.

We’ll gather in Zuccotti Park carrying our signs to end US government aid to the Egyptian military (1.3 billion dollars every year), which helps arm the military regime killing Egyptian civilians.

US firm’s teargas used against Tahrir Square protesters

CSI has also old teargas to the Israeli police, where it has been deployed against Palestinian demonstrators, as well as, reportedly, to the regime of Tunisia’s ousted dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
