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.
