You can watch Egypt protests 2011 online with live-feed video from a Cairo Hotel—unless the government shuts down the Internet, of course. Also, get the latest on what’s happening on the ground as the unrest grows.

Egypt Protest 2011

The world has turned its eyes on Egypt as thousands of angry residents have taken to the streets to challenge the authority of President Hosni Mubarak, who has been in power for nearly three decades. But as the chaos unfolds, one crucial form of communication has been all but squelched—the almighty Internet.

As you may recall, uprisings worldwide have been increasingly coordinated via the web, whether on Facebook, Twitter, or a number of other SN sites. Authorities are beginning to catch on, and the worst fears of many anti-Mubarak activists may have come true after officials apparently flipped the Internet kill switch.

Prior to that, you could watch Egypt protests 2011 online, with live-feed video streaming from the Sheraton Cairo Hotel.

The abrupt cut-off has been attributed to the efforts of authorities concerned over a planned burst of protests after Friday prayers. Along with the lack of web access came a complete shut down to cell phone access as well.

The impetus for the uprising has been connected to what many feel has been a complete lack of attention to many of the nation’s woes, including widespread poverty, high unemployment and the out of control cost of food.

Even one of the most respected figures in the push for democracy was not spared the wrath of the riot police. HuffPo reports that Mohamed ElBaradei found himself backed into a mosque that was later raided.

Scary stuff.
