…they live forever.

In prison cells. In exile. In the hearts of millions who continue to dream of a better tomorrow. January 25, 2022 marks 11 years since the Egyptian people took to the streets to call for “bread, freedom and social justice” in what later came to be known as the Jan 25 revolution.

About Jan 25

11 years ago, millions gathered all across Egypt, demanding “bread, freedom, and social justice!” Over the course of 18 days, Egyptians from a range of socio-economic and religious backgrounds came together for the same dream.

The protests focused on a wide range of issues, including police brutality, civil liberties, corruption, high unemployment, inflation, and inequality. As the protests grew, the demonstrators set their sights on ending the decades-long rule of Hosni Mubarak and his circle of elites and cronies.

These Egyptians were among millions across the region who risked their lives to come to the streets and demand their rights. From Tunisia to Syria, across the Middle East and North Africa, many lost their lives, and many continue to sacrifice, in prison cells or scattered in exile – simply for daring to dream of freedom.

While their governments tried to crush them, their ideas remain alive… because Ideas Don’t Die.

About Ideas Don’t Die

The Freedom Initiative launched the Ideas Don’t Die campaign, aiming to commemorate not just the events of the Jan 25 revolution, but the ideas and values that inspired it. At the same time, Ideas Don’t Die centers on the sacrifices made by those who believed and continue to believe in the ideals of the revolution, in particular, the 65,000+ political prisoners languishing in Egyptian prisons.


This year we continue that tradition. As we commemorate the 11th anniversary of the Egyptian revolution, we aim to capture the soul of January 25 and the sense of endless possibilities it inspired, while shining a light on those that continue to pay a price for daring to dream.
