|(SF Gate)- Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin Wednesday headed up a dozen Code Pink banner-bearing activists in Cairo’s Tahrir Square — a scene she said descended into a bloody “war zone” as “government thugs” battled pro-democracy demonstrators.
We caught Benjamin just after midnight Egyptian time as she retreated from the embattled square in Cairo…
But she noted it couldn’t stop her and the Code Pinkers who took to the square Wednesday, parading a large banner in both Engligh and Arabic, reading: “The World Says It’s Time For Mubarak to Go.”
