This Egyptian protest viral offers a moving insight into the heated uprisings that are currently sweeping throughout the country, but which the Egyptian government has been working hard to suppress.

The video features highly charged footage of protesters and government forces clashing in the streets and is a testimony to the power of the Internet and social media to communicate the ideals and messages of activists despite government crackdowns on conventional communications.

Implications - It's extremely powerful in it's message, and is guaranteed to reach and affect the masses. It will definitely give those who have little insight into foreign affairs a lot to think about.
