Egypt. Egypt. Egypt .... that's all we've hearing about these days. But unless you've been following the story very closely, it can be a little difficult to wrap your head around what's really going on over there.
The Memphis International Solidarity Committee was recently founded to educate the public about the uprising in Egypt. They're hosting a public discussion called "From Cairo to Memphis" at Memphis College of Art's Callicott Auditorium on Friday, February 25th from 6 to 9 p.m.
Three of the scheduled speakers — Ahmed Zaafan, Zeina Salem, Saad Kamel — will be on-hand via Skype from Egypt. Other speakers include Neal Gammill, Dr. Rob Canfield, Ahmed Elnahas, Merci Decker, and Justin Sledge. A Q&A session will follow the panel discussion.
And if a little education isn't enough incentive to come, there's also free vegetarian food.
