'Egyptians Are Back in Business'
Amor Eletrebi, Al Jazeera
Is it possible that protesting and winter go hand-in-hand with Egyptian revolutions?
"Egyptians are back in business!" chanted one of the protesters walking down Tahrir Square.
As of writing, it has been over 36 hours of constant battles. Tahrir was the trophy, as it has ever been for the past ten months. Throwing rocks, batons, tear gas, rubber bullets and occasional live ammunition aimed at head and neck were all included, as usual. It's been ten months of despair, fear, random violence, confusion and thousands of civilians being put on military trials.
It was November 19, but felt like no other day but January 25.
