Celebrating International Women's Day, 2013

Arab Spring activist-leader speaks

With events in Egypt bringing to the world's attention once more the unfinished and unfolding nature of the Arab Spring, we want to commemorate this year's International Women's Day by hearing from an Egyptian activist, participant and organizer of the Arab Spring.

From the beginnings in the textile strikes, through their participation in Tahrir Square in 2011, to being the first to challenge Morsi's limitations to full freedom for all Egyptians, women have been demonstrating that the revolution's success brings about fundamental changes in every-day human relations. They have most powerfully demonstrated how freedom cannot be limited to neither political (elections) nor economic (jobs) "sphere," but must restructure the whole of society from the bottom up.

Ahmed Salah, formerly a co-founder and strategist until end of 2010 of the April 6th Movement, former leader of Youth For Change, and current leader of the coalition of the committees for the defense of the revolution, will present the recent developments in the Middle East up to the current unrest, which is much more fundamental than opposition to Morsi's Constitution.
