The revolution of the youth of the 25th January - Egypt, 2011
January 25th, young activists from different movements such as "Justice and Freedom", "6 April Youth 'or'friends' facebook page"we are all Khaled Said "have called for a day of revolt in Egypt following the enthousiasm of Ben Ali’s fall in Tunisia. To their surprise, the event gathered more than 15,000 people on Tahrir Square, expressing their fed against the regime and their desire for change. An unprecedented gathering in Cairo, where activists generally fail to mobilize more then a small number of regulars, always closely supervised by the police. In November 2010, only 200 people came together to expose massive fraud in elections. But this electoral masquerade, a number of other abuses of the regime of Hosni Mubarak and regional context have this time drew the Egyptian in the streets. The young activists succeeded in rallying the Egyptians from all walks behind them. Every following day, there will be more people in the streets of Cairo or occupying the Tahrir Square (Liberation in Arabic). The Clashes between security forces and peaceful protesters will make more then 8 hundreds of deaths, convincing a little more the Egyptian people of the legitimicy of his demands. The barrier of fear of Egyptians living in the permanent “state of emergency” has been broken. 18 days of obstined and peaceful revolution will force the "rais" Hosni Mubarak, in power for nearly thirty years, to leave.
