ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A Georgia Southern University student from Decatur County spent several weeks in Egypt on a study abroad program.
She left just as the protests began. Allyson Lumpkin, a graduate of Bainbridge High School, said small protests were taking place when she left January 15th, but she had no idea they would lead to the massive demonstrations going on now.
She stayed in a hotel a few blocks from Tahrir Square where hundreds of thousands of demonstrators have gathered for a week.
"Our hotel was literally two blocks from Tahrir Square. It's like our version of Times Square. From from what I've heard on TV, it's been taken over by the military. We were just told by our contacts over there the area where we were staying in front of the hotel, 3,000 protestors marched through there to get to Tahrir Square. It's been completely taken over by protestors and the military," said Lumpkin.
Lumpkin is a junior at Georgia Southern. She says she's glad she got out when she did but she's concerned about some of the people she met over there. She's unable to get in touch with them now because the government shut down the Internet.
