Revolution and back: Five years fighting for democracy in Egypt


What's the point in voting for one presidential candidate or the other if the military can come at any time and decide he shouldn't be there? What's the point of voting in parliamentary elections when the military might decide that we don't need a parliament?

Five years after the January 25th revolution that overthrew Hosni Mubarak, Egyptian human rights activist Salma Hussein talks about her country's ongoing fight to reclaim political and economic power for Egypt's military rule, and the violence facing a new generation of democracy activists, empowered by the unfinished dream of bread, freedom and social justice for all Egyptians.

Salma recently posted The Egyptian revolution #Jan25: Important Readings and What you must know about the Egyptian military industrial complex at her blog In Quest For Justice.
