Egypt's Ongoing Revolution

EPPOn June 30, between 14 and 17 million Egyptians took to the streets to demand the ouster of their first democratically-elected government of Mohammed Morsi, which came about a few days later when the military intervened (to protect its own institutional interests) and side with the population. Looking back at the start of the revolution in 2011, it's important to understand the conditions that led to the revolution, labour unrest, economic and social justice, and pro-democracy groups organizing. The US government had its own interests at play, namely in an attempt to co-opt, but that effort was largely unsuccessful. Egypt's ongoing revolution is an inspiration and a powerful example of the complexity of relations between institutions and populations.
