I do not like the fact that some media outlets have limited our revolution in Tahrir square as if #Jan25 revolution were not the revolution of Egypt , as if Suez , Ismailia and North Sinai did not fight the Mubarak troops for complete 3 days , as if Alexandria did not revolt and Damanhur did not bring down its State security in this revolution !!?
The revolution and the revolutionaries were not only in Al Tahrir and Cairo , the revolution was all over , the revolution and revolutionaries were not only the middle class of Youth of Cairo for God sake !!? All Egypt was in the street , from all ages , from all background , from all classes !!? It is natural that the Youth will be the biggest sector in the revolution but they were not alone and they were not only the middle class youth.
The orphans of Mubarak’s regime have began to have this term “The youth of Tahrir” as the revolution was only there . Mubarak would not have left the rule if it were only in Tahrir square !! Mubarak had left after knowing that all Egypt can’t tolerate him anymore.
This is another attempt from the counter revolution to limit the revolution in order minimize its impact by time and says that it was just a movement like What former PM Shafik claimed on air before speaking about our revolution !!
Again make a search online on YouTube and see the revolution since the protests of January 25th till February 11th across the country and you will see that it was not in Cairo only , it was so big and huge.
Let’s not exclude the rest of Egypt from our perspective , the revolution made it when we thought out of the box , when we thought out of Cairo.
