New section on activism

Since there is a lot of information coming out on activism these days, especially around the 25 May demos, I created a new category called Activism. All posts about demos and other events organized by activists, whether in Egypt or abroad, will be listed there. Since I post things are they are sent to me, it'll be a more convenient place to look for events close to where you live than browsing through the archives. News about activism will still make the home page, though.
