The author who was a key figure behind the Egyptian uprising in January 2011 which resulted in the ousting of President Mubarak tells the inside story and presents lessons on how to unleash the power of crowds to create political change. The power of the people is stronger than the people in power. Social media allow ideas to be shared. They are places where people can unite, Revolutions can begin, a new type of Revolution. The author used to be a man unwilling to publicly criticise the Egyptian regime. Like many, he was silenced by the fear of reprisals. But in January 2011 he decided he had seen too much oppression go unchallenged and started a Facebook page calling for the people to protest. It became a rallying-point for revolution and Egyptians took to the streets, while he was held by security forces for a horrifying 11 days. In an attempt to quell the revolution the government moved to shut down the internet, fearful of its ability to mobilise the people. It was too late; the people were no longer afraid of making themselves heard. This book is an insider's story from the heart of the Egyptian Spring, and gives insight into why the Egyptian people finally rejected 30 years of oppression and found a voice.
