The Egyptian Revolution

Inspired by the successful uprising in Tunisia, protesters in Egypt announced a "Day of Anger" on January 25, 2011 and protests took place in different cities. After they were violently suppressed by the security forces, Egyptians took to the streets and occupied Tahrir Square, chanting "The people want the fall of the regime!” (الشعب يريد إسقاط النظام)
In a little less than 20 days the previously unthinkable had happened - longtime President Hosni Mubarak, who had ruled with an iron grip for 30 years, was forced to step down.
