SMSs of the sit in

Warning! This post is very old and may contain information that is no longer valid.

Alaa sent a number of SMSs from the sit in. Since he couldn't set up his blog to do the same due to Vodaphone putting restrictions on international SMS. These SMS appeared as published posts on the front page of this blog.

I removed the posts from the front page, but they are still accessible.

Some messages got truncated.

Here are the messages with approximate date and time:
