Via John Grooms at Atlanta’s Creative Loafing:

Yesterday at CPAC, the big conservative conference in D.C., Ron Paul supporters and other libertarians in the crowd spoiled a sweet Bush-era reunion by launching a shouting match and protest action.

From Darryl W. Perry, Chair, Boston Tea Party National Committee:

Hosni Mubrak has resigned as President of Egypt, now there is talk of whether or not he will be tried for “Crimes Against Humanity.” The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court Explanatory Memorandum states, Crimes Against Humanity “are particularly odious offenses in that they constitute a serious attack on human dignity or grave humiliation or a degradation of one or more human beings.… Read more ...

Wayne Root: Mubarak Ego Plunges Egypt into Tragedy

By Wayne Allyn Root, Former Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee and Best-Selling Author

On Thursday Egyptian President Mubarak turned a crisis into a tragedy. His disastrous decision not to resign could very well lead to the end of Egypt as we know it and will almost certainly lead to Egypt burning.

San Francisco Libertarian Activist Starchild at Protest of Solidarity with the People of Egypt

San Francisco Libertarian Activist Starchild attended a protest of solidarity with the people of Egypt. The protest took place Saturday, February 5, and took place at United Nations Plaza in San Francisco. Starchild’s rough estimate is perhaps three or four hundred people were present.
