Celebrate the end of the Egyptian dictatorship tonight at GLW 20th anniversary

The Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak has gone!

Hours after a televised speech in which he defied the mass uprising against him and declared he would remain as Egypt’s dictator, Mubarak stepped down.

This development is a tremendous victory for people's power, even as the struggle for a genuinely democratic and anti-imperialist Egypt is still unfolding.

We will be celebrating this popular victory tonight at the Green Left Weekly 20th anniversary party and we'd love you to come and join us.

Green Left lives for people's power and the toppling of a dictator by the people of Egypt is one of the best birthday presents we could get.
