Celebrating the Egyptian Revolution at Busboys and Poets, 2/16/11

The Montgomery County Council is hosting an event entitled “The Egyptian Revolution: What Happened?  And What Happens Now?” on March 1 from 6-8pm in the Council Hearing Room on the 3rd floor of the County Council Office Building (101 Monroe St., Rockville).  Georgetown Law adjunct professor and lawyer Sahar Aziz will be speaking along with American Univeristy’s Diane Singerman, Egyptian journalist Mohamed Elmenshawy, and Egyptian American community leaders.

The events in Egypt implicate many topics including democracy, grassroots organizing, Middle East foreign policy, rule of law, and international development. The panel discussion in Rockville will be a chance to learn more about what happened in Egypt, how it was done, and what it means for the future.  It will hopefully also be a chance to forge new ties with groups concerned about civil liberties and civil rights here in America — and here in our county.

If your organization or others you know would like to help publicize the event please email Councilman George Leventhal.
