Remembering the Arab Spring

04 Jul

In December 2010, the ‘Arab Spring‘ sent shockwaves through the ruling structures in several Middle Eastern and North African countries. Decades of tyrannical rule would come crushing down in an astonishing display of civil and digital activism.

However, disgruntlement in the region was not a sudden occurance. In 2007, activists in Egypt were making valiant strides to expose electoral fraud and voter intimation in the elections. The Why Democracy? documentary, Egypt: We Are Watching You captures the tireless work that was happening long before that historic month in 2010.
