Global Uprisings: Egyptian Winter
Global Uprisings is an independent media project covering uprisings in the worldwide economic crisis against injustice and authoritarian governments. Check out the website of this project. Below you can find the latest documentary "Egyptian Winter".
"Two years after the revolution in Egypt began, unrest continues across the country as the political and economic situation worsens. As the current government consolidates its power, the demands of the revolution may seem further away than ever. Still the revolution has opened up new spaces for political action, spurring public debate on issues that have gone unacknowledged and unresolved for too long.
This short documentary looks at some of the reasons motivating revolutionaries to keep taking the streets, the obstacles that they are facing, and the tactics that they are using. It looks into the current economic and political problems facing Egyptians, the growing independent union movement, black bloc tactics, and the response of women to sexual assaults."
