6 April Movement Protests, Crackdowns

Today is April 6, the symbolic protest date of Egypt's 6 April Movement and the date again for protests, marches on Parliament, etc. Like last year there are reportedly scattered protests but also massive presence of security forces in the streets, and some of the opposition websites, including the 6 April Movement's own, have been hacked. So far the reports are hard to sift through and the claims hard to evaluate, but as facts emerge I'll post links, videos, or whztever is available.
