Eins zwei drei - Mubarak ist vorbei!

One, two, three - Mubarak has to leave! (lit: 1, 2, 3, Mubarak is over, but that doesn't rhyme, or scan, very well)

Frankfurt is a very international city. I have mentioned this before. When the uprising in Tunisia happened, hundreds also demonstrated down the Zeil in support. Today we saw a protest march of women against Berlusconi. One had a sign which stated "Berlusconismus = Sexismus" ("Berlusconism = sexism") which I think pretty much got to the point of that one.

During the revolution currently underway in Egypt some members of the Egyptian community (and others) here have also been very vocal in how they feel about the current (or maybe now former? under transition?) leadership of the country. They are not too pleased.

Below are a couple of photographs of the demonstration which took place around a sculpture by Konstablerwache on 29th January. They won't win any prizes but you get the idea. I found the "Hillary! Man up or shut up!" sign most amusing.
