Great post on AYM Movements for those who want to keep track what happened and when:
April 6, 2008
- The April 6 Youth Movement Facebook page is created to support the workers in Mahalla al-Kobra, an industrial town, who were planning to strike on April 6. Police and military were ready to arrest anyone demonstrating. Subsequent protests were largely considered flops and multiple activists were arrested between April and July.
- A group of activists, including Google executive Wael Ghonim and April 6 leader Ahmed Maher, begin meeting once a week to discuss plans for a protest against the government.
