The Noise of Cairo, a new film documentary about the art scene in Cairo after the revolution

The film follows the interplay between art and the revolution in Egypt. Protest of any kind was punished violently in pre-revolutionary Egypt and artistic expression was considered nothing but a threat to the status quo. But since the fall of the Mubarak dictatorship, the art scene in Cairo is flourishing once again. A very inspirational film. If you’re interested in the arts and/or Africa, I think you’ll love this.

Democracy protests bring down Egypt’s Mubarak
…the genesis of the force that overthrew Mubarak. The protests were started by a small core of secular, liberal youth activists organizing on the Internet who only a few months earlier struggled to gather more than 100 demonstrators at a time. But their work through Facebook and other social network sites over the past few years built a greater awareness and bitterness among Egyptians over issues like police abuse and corruption.

Wael Ghonim: Negotiation days with Mubarak are over: Ghonim played a key role in organizing the protests that have convulsed Egypt for more than two weeks. He was the administrator of a Facebook page that is widely credited with calling the first protest January 25. “The plan was to get everyone onto the street,” he said. “Number one was that we are going to start from poor areas.”
