We Don't Need Leaders, Protesters Say

Now, to a far more important phenom than the non-existent US jobs...

Egypt had the largest anti-Mubarak, pro-democracy demonstrations throughout the country on Friday. Alexandria had 1 million, peacefully marching and gathering.

From Al Jazeera Live Blog for February 4, 2011:

9:51pm Wael Abbas, a pro-democracy activist and blogger, tells Al Jazeera that the protesters have no need for leadership. He is outside Liberation Square (Tahrir).

There is no need for leadership, people are organising themselves. People already know what there demands are, they don't need someone to tell them what to do.

Will the US and its allies succeed in forcing these people to accept new "leaders" picked by the US?
