Egypt Solidarity Protest in PDX

I went to the Egypt solidarity rally in Portland today. It was a decent turnout. Chants were "Brick by Brick, Wall by Wall, We will make Mubarak Fall" and many more chants.
Children were dancing waving the Egypt's flag as everyone chanted. There was a lot of energy coming from the organizers of this rally. It was wonderful to see a large group of people from all different backgrounds taking part in today's rally. I hope more will continue until Mubarak steps down.

Also, just to clear this up as there has been confusion that President Hosni Mubarak stepped down. This is not true. The top leadership body of Egypt's ruling party, including Mubarak's son Gamal Mubarak, has resigned today. But not President Hosni Mubarak.
