Tiananmen Square vs. Tahrir Square: History repeats itself?

Nicholas Kristof: “I just did a bunch more interviews at Tahrir Square, and the mood is giddy. I especially love the campfires.

Some of the regime’s moves — earlier curfew, buzzing protesters with fighter planes, nasty media — don’t seem conciliatory at all.”  Source
