U.S. Activist Aishah Schwartz revisits Cairo on Anniversary of Egypt's 25 Jan. Revolution
"In commemoration of the day that every Egyptian will remember the rest of their lives, they came from near and far, from all walks of life, to remember the hundreds martyred and thousands injured - and to continue in the ongoing call for justice."
To share with you what I saw on January 25, 2012 as I spent the day walking throughout the downtown Cairo area, I have compiled my photos into albums, three published on the London-based photojournalism website, Demotix, and another album publicly published on Facebook. You are invited to view and share the albums linked below.
Album 1: Egyptians commemorate Anniversary of the Revolution - Cairo
Album 2: Egypt commemorates first anniversary of revolution - Cairo
Album 3: Commemorating the 25Jan 2011 Revolution - Cairo
Album 4: Egypt Commemorates 1st Anniversary of #25Jan Revolution
In a congratulatory statement released February 11, 2011 when former President Hosni Mubarak resigned from office, I published numerous comments offered by Egyptians, and others, wishing to express their sentiments as Egypt celebrated its "Day of Victory". Among those comments, one rings particularly true to this very day,
"I am proud of the Egyptian revolution and proud to be Egyptian. Egyptians orchestrated lessons of the peoples' will and more importantly in a peaceful way. The Egyptian revolution prevailed against camels, horses, gas tanks, water hoses, police tortures, and all kinds of state terrorism. I am asking the Egyptians to stay stead fast and united. This is the beginning of democracy and a new Egypt. I celebrated today but will hold the complete celebration when the entire corrupted regime departs," stated Egyptian-American and Associate Professor of Accounting Dr. Amal Said, of Toledo, Ohio.
