Antiwar Radio: Ahmed Elassy

Ahmed Elassy, Organizer and Public Affairs Director for the Egyptian-International Coalition for Ending the Blockade and Rebuilding Gaza, discusses Hosni Mubarakís arrest following his brazen public statement denying corruption and threatening to sue those who slandered him; how Egyptians have resolved to bring Mubarak to justice themselves if the military fails to do so; the foreign banks refusing to freeze the Mubarak familyís billions in ill-gotten assets; Ahmedís meeting with Egyptís Foreign Minister Dr. Nabil Al-Araby on allowing commercial goods into Gaza and working to open the Rafah crossing permanently; and the billions in Gaza aid sitting idle while the cement and steel needed to rebuild remains blockaded by Israel.
