Gunfire in Cairo - raw video


ASTONISHING video footage is emerging from Cairo, where protesters are braving toxic chemical gases and even live bullets as they fight to protect democracy and the revolution.

Huge numbers gathered in Tahrir Square on Tuesday, with adjacent side streets filled with what was virtually civil war, as the state attacked opponents of the SCAF military regime.

A televised speech by Mohamed Tantawi, the head of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, did nothing to halt the mood of rebellion, with its echoes of Mubarak's final days.

The mood of the protesters today can be seen in these messages appearing on Twitter under the hashtag of the revolution, #jan25: 

This is different than somehow. Less chanting/signs and more battle-like. Its not a protest anymore, it's a revolution.

a friend who never supported : "I support tahrir. Today I can say tahrir is only true & honest thing in " it made me cry...
Today is the happiest for me sice ,today my fiancee joins the revolution and we are going to hand in hand :)
2,000,000+ now in , I guess that didn't even happen in days !!
Dear US Government, We don't hate you because we hate your freedom. We hate you because you hate our freedom.
