In what is being dubbed the "March of Millions," hundreds of thousands of Egyptians have taken to the streets in the eighth day of protests against President Hosni Mubarak. Demonstrations have vowed to remain on the streets until Mubarak, who has held his position for more than 30 years, quits. Protests are taking place in Tahrir Square, which translates to Liberation Square.

For reaction to the demonstrations from the Egyptian American community, we talk with Mona Shand, a reporter for WHMI in Michigan. Mona is a first generation immigrant with uncles, aunts and cousins still residing in Egypt. Munsis El Buri is a political dissident from Libya. He tells his story of getting out of Libya and changes he'd like to see come to his home country.
