This is a brief article that makes a big point about the Egypt of today.
Two years ago, on Police Day, a national holiday, citizens rose up to say, “No more.” They will continue to do so until a new government is formed that can safeguard Egypt’s many natural resources and unleash the human potential so evident in its people.On this anniversary of the "days of rage" that ignited across Egypt two years ago, I think it is fitting that we look at what is happening today in that troubled country. Below are three additional articles that I recommend.
I recommend this piece entitled "Egypt’s Cultural Revolution Is Here" from Muftah by Sarah Zakzouk, a London-based academic publisher, who on her recent visit to Egypt was very impressed by what she saw as a cultural as well as a political revolution.
Second, this piece from Jadaliyya by their editors entitled "Another Year of Rage".
Finally, this piece from World Socialist Web Site entitled "Mursi declares state of emergency as protests escalate in Egypt" gives the latest update on the current scene.
