Human wall protecting the Cairo Museum

Kudos to these men.

  1. I agree. It takes great courage to stand together, apparently unarmed, to make sure that your heritage is not lost in the push to the future.

  2. Kudos x 2.

    Here's hoping they can prevent the kind of heartbreaking looting and destruction that were visited on Baghdad's museums and other antiquities.

  3. From what I've read on Wiki about the recent protests, there was a break-in at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Apparently the looters got in through the roof and managed to tear the heads off of two mummies and damage other small artefacts before they were caught.
