They're going for insurrection

A story in the Guardian describes leaflets circulating in Cairo:

Protesters in Cairo are advised to gather in large numbers in their own neighbourhoods away from police and troops and then move towards key installations such the state broadcasting HQ on the Nile-side Corniche and try to take control "in the name of the people". Other priority targets are the presidential palace and police stations in several parts of central Cairo.

It's not clear who this is, but as always, if the police and army fold, which no longer seems far-fetched, given the gerontocratic nature of the regime, we may have February revolutions across the arab world.

An eruption of real politics about real power.
