    Dispatches from Tahrir Square


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     backporch stopped in Cairo for a layover while en route to South Sudan to help facilitate food distribution on July 6. While in Cairo, he explored the area of Tahrir Square, capturing footage of people protesting and gathering on the streets. 'I support the revolution and it is an exciting time to be in Egypt. History is happening and it's the kind of history Egyptians will be telling their grandchildren about,' he said. He filmed anti-Morsy protesters and says he was on the scene as an observer, but he does support the protesting that is happening. 'I am supportive of a democratic Egypt where the will of the people is carried out. I believe it is a bumpy road and there will be hiccups along the way, but the will of the majority will prevail,' he explained.
