Organizing the Egyptian Revolution

A concrete plan of action for Egyptian protesters.

Alexis Madrigal / The Atlantic:
Egyptian Activists' Action Plan: Translated --

Egyptian activists have been circulating a kind of primer to Friday's planned protest. We were sent the plan by two separate sources and have decided to publish excerpts here, with translations into English. Over Twitter, we connected with a translator, who translated the document with exceptional speed.

What follows are side-by-side translations of nine pages from the 26-page pamphlet. They were translated over the last hour and pasted up in Photoshop to give you an idea of what's in the protest plan...
How to Overthrow the Egyptian National Democratic Party
Wikipedia: The National Democratic Party (Arabic: الحزب الوطني الديمقراطى, often simply الحزب الوطني – the "National Party" or "Nationalist Party" – in conversation) is the current ruling party of Egypt.

UPDATE: (2:10 a.m. ET) HuffPost reader Thomas Jaworowski, a tech enthusiast, emails in that he "decided to try a few tricks" to see if Egypt's Internet really was down or it was just server overload causing the problems.
