Far From Tahrir
"Revolutionary People. Far from Tahrir” tells the stories of people from the El Desamy and El Saff communities in the suburbs of Cairo. Although they didn’t take part directly in the revolution (January 25 - February 11, 2011) that led to President Mubarak’s resignation, they are evidence of an on-going process of change.
With more determination and strength than before, they now take an active role in the committees and public spaces that had been created years before thanks to their need and urgency for local participation. The revolution seems to have empowered this part of the civil society and, vice versa, it seems to have drawn new lifeblood from these early movements.
