Overview
The 25th of January 2011 is a day of glory in Egyptian history. With no apparent leadership, millions of pro-democracy protesters from Cairo, Alexandria and Suez took to the streets demanding the fall of the Mubarak regime. Echoes of the demands resonated throughout Egypt: "The people want to topple the regime".
Dignity, freedom, and social justice were some of the demands that millions voiced in the early days of the revolution as a result of 30 years of dictatorship, injustice and prosecution.
After 18-days of continuous demonstrations, former president Hosni Mubarak stepped down.
Egyptian Freedom Story gives a new meaning to the phrase: "A picture is worth a thousand words". Over 200 photos taken by professional Egyptian photographers during the unrest, uprising and ultimately the revolution that has paved the way toward a "New Egypt".
"Revolutions don't happen overnight" summarizes the introduction of each chapter of this photo of this photo documentary. The visual flashback; How did the Egyptians break away from Hosni Mubarak's stronghold on January 25th on Tuesday in Tahrir Square? How did the nation survive the government's orchestrated horror on January 28 with no internet or mobile phone communication, as they faced Mubarak's Central Security Forces, State Security and the Egyptian Intelligence? How did the revolutionaries sustain 18-days in the open protesting in Tahrir Square until Mubarak stepped down on February 11th? How did the Muslims, Christians, political parties, activists and all the liberated Egyptians make way toward the referendum deciding their future under the rule of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces?
An explosion of brilliant political art emerged during the Egyptian revolution. Egypt's painters, poets, writers, musicians and street-artists openly presented the nation's political issues in one form or another - a sign of the true democratic experience Egyptians are living today.
