The activists are flooding the net (youtube and other sites) with thousands of pictures and videos showing the riot police firing on armless people. The police started to use ammunition against protesters. 15-year old girl has been injured and another 25 year old man has been shot in the mouth. While nothing of these has appeared in the media, there is more to happen tomorrow. Will you keep silent? Will you keep your mouth shut while seeing all these cruelty and inhumane actions?

We don't ask for much, just broadcast what is happening

3:46 PM ET - Fellow web intern at The Nation Sara Jerving put this audio slide show video together featuring an eyewitness account from her friend who has been studying the Israel-Palestine conflict in Israel. She lived in Cairo for some months and returned this week to participate in the protests in Egypt.

3:27 PM ET Now-Vice President Omar Suleiman of Egypt, recently sworn in by Mubarak as a concession to the uprising, will just bring more brutality and torture to Egyptians. WLLegal on Twitter has sent out many materials proving this truth.

Both Stephen Grey's Ghost Plane  and Jane Mayer's The Dark Side cite Suleiman's connection to rendition and torture. Mayer's book connected Suleiman to the CIA.

WikiLeaks cables released also show Omar Suleiman's connection: General Petraeus' Meeting, Admiral Mullen's Meeting, Presidential Succession in Egypt. (The cables spell his name Soliman.)

Mubarak and Suleiman are very close.

3:19 PM ET Much of the chatter on Twitter from Egyptians at this time centers around defending property from looters. 

Follow The Guardian' s live blog on Egypt. Follow Al Jazeera's live blog too. Keep updated on the latest as the night time continues to bring terror to people who are fighting for freedom from a terrible Mubarak regime.

3:05 PM ET Reports on Al Jazeera from Alexandria that there is a plant with flammable material, possibly nitrous oxide, that could explode if fires reach the plant. There are no fire brigades on the streets putting out fires.
