Demonstrations are getting larger in Egypt – the masses in Cairo extended their presence from the famous Tahrir square all the way to the Egyptian parliament. Yesterday there were talks that the office of the prime minister is under siege. This extension of protests came after Wael Ghonim’s dramatic interview on Dream TV. This helped many Egyptians realize what is going on.

Vice president Omar Suleiman said that he the protests can’t go on for too long, and that he fears a coup.  There are reports about strikes planned in key places such as the Suez Canal company and state-run media companies. If these bastions fall, the regime could be toppled.
