SF State University to Hold Discussion About Egypt



    San Francisco State University students exit the Muni station and enter the campus at 19th and Holloway Avenue, the main campus entrance.

    Students and teachers of San Francisco State University are holding a public discussion this afternoon, to address issues surrounding the uprising in Egypt, reports the Bay City News.

    "It looks like this is going to be the beginning of a bigger change in the Arab world," orgainzer Mira Nabulsi said. "The barrier of fear that existed before is being challenged."

    Speakers include students from Egypt and professors who specialize in the politics and culture of the Arab world. Speakers are also expected to discuss the impact the internet has played during recent events.

    "I think (social media) helps a lot but it was people coming out into the streets that toppled the regime in Tunisia. We need to give credit to those people," Nabulsi said.

    Today's discussion will be held at the College of Ethnic Studies at SFSU in Room EP 116 at 4 p.m.
