Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Cairo to speak out against the government in what activists in an Internet campaign are calling "a day of revolt." At one point, Egyptian police brought out tear gas to subdue the crowds, who are protesting against President Hosni Mubarak and the high unemployment rate in Egypt. The protesters are believed to have been inspired by the revolt that erupted in Tunisia over a week ago.
