Maged: A police brutality victim

Maged’s story sheds light on what happens to protesters in Tahrir, and therefore I decided to share it here. I briefly got introduced to Maged (aka. @Magbutter) through Mona El Tahawy (aka. @monaeltahawy) at around 11.30pm on November 23rd, 2011 in Tahrir.

Egyptian Parliamentary Elections: A Logistical Nightmare

I was watching the administrative head of the Egyptian parliamentary elections (2011) on television, when it all of a sudden hit me that by sheer numbers the elections are a logistical nightmare.

Former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq resigned this morning after appearing on television last night in a live debate with intellectuals who believe in the revolution.

When will I trust the police?

On the 28th of January 2011, police presence on the streets was strong and felt. Many of us did not just see them on the streets, but clashed with them, felt their wrath or even lost their lives because of them. The police used all known brutality tactics to subdue the masses, who were peacefully […]
