Egypt Protest in Bixby

Bixby, OK – Bixby demonstrators chant 'Mubarak has gone'

BIXBY, Okla. (AP) A group of about 85 demonstrators used signs and chants to show their support of developments in Egypt.

The Tulsa World reported that the demonstrators gathered Sunday at a busy intersection in the Tulsa suburb of Bixby carrying signs that read "Democracy for Egypt" and "Honk Your Horns."

As they waved the signs, many chanted "Freedom come on, Mubarak is gone."

Hosni Mubarak (HAHS'-nee moo-BAH'-rahk), president of Egypt for 30 years, resigned Friday amid political pressure from the military and from thousands of protesters who had taken to the streets in Egypt for weeks.
