2011 Egyptian Revolution: Facebook & Media as part of the protests

Last week at AFS Germany national training weekend Sherifa Fayez, the head of AFS Egypt, gave a speech that will be remembered by everyone in the room. It was full of passion and honest emotions. While Sherifa brought Tahir Square to this room in Germany our eyes filled with tears and our hearts were touched in a very special way.

Sometimes – to me politics is what happens at the 8 o’clock news. I tend to forget that democracy means the “rule of the people” – and that it is major struggle to reclaim that power one in a while.

You have deeply inspired me – Thank you Sherifa!
