Coming up on the anniversary of the liveliest expression of popular dissatisfaction with the Mubarak regime in recent memory--the March 2003 demos--it seems like the moment to wheel out some old photos. I've scanned a (rathered battered) roll of negatives, and strung them together with some captions here.

I think the moral of the story is this: if there's a dozen guys dressed up like little Darth Vaders chasing you, run like hell.
