The media seemed to wind down on the bizarre events of Egypt, but Wayne State University Students are not giving up on the right to democracy. The WSU MSA students and the Egyptian Students Association at WSU are putting together a three day event to protest for peace in Egypt in Rabaa.

Day 1 is a Rally for Rabaa around the Wayne State University campus on Monday October 21st from 11:30AM until 1:00PM. Students from all over Michigan are coming down to WSU to join the rally. That includes students from University of Michigan-Dearborn, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Michigan State University, Henry Ford Community College and Oakland University. This rally is expected to be a big event but it’s only the beginning.

Day 2 is a seminar and panel focusing on the theme: What is Rabaa Square?/Are You Ready to Make History?. It will be held on Tuesday October 22nd from 3:00PM until 6:00PM in the Kresge Auditorium at WSU.  This panel is for all students on campus that are not aware of the current situation in Egypt or even for those who are aware but are seeking more information with a truth seal. Speakers will begin by explaining what Rabaa is and how it started. They will also inform the students how the events in Egypt are affecting us as American citizens today. 

Day 3 will be on Saturday October 26th from 11:00AM until 4:00PM in the Keast Commons at WSU. The third day event will run longer than the first two and is aiming to let the knowledge put to action. Now that students heard enough about #Rabaa square of Egypt, where military’s armed forces killed thousands of peaceful protesters, it’s the time to experience Rabaa in Detroit. Demonstrations, marches, sit-ins, exhibits, Rabaa music and poetry, speeches, games, and much more are on the agenda for this day, considering it the ultimate Rabaa Experience!
