Here are a few images I took during a sit-in in front of the Egyptian embassy in Amman in support of the Egyptian uprising against the Mubarak regime. The people held the Egyptian flag alongside the Jordanian flag as well as pictures of Gamal Abdel Nasser and chanted slogans in support of the Egyptian people demanding Mubarak steps down and follows the former Tunisian Ben Ali to Saudi Arabia.

The people also chanted in support of Tunisia, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine as well as Sudan communicating the importance of a popular revolt and how it is the way to the reform the entire region needs. At some point the demonstrators even cheered asking for Al Bakhit – the newly appointed Jordanian prime minister, who has only been in position a few hours – asking him to step down.
