Egypt: A Revolution Continues

The struggle in Egypt that began in 2011 and inspired people around the world is at a critical juncture. Amidst a deadlock between the Muslim Brotherhood and the opposition, the persistence of police brutality and state institutions of the old regime, and a looming economic crisis, the divide between political elites and people is growing ever wider. How much has changed since the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011? What are the prospects for political change in the future?

Come hear from two of Egypt's finest independent reporters who have covered the Egyptian revolution from the beginning.

Lina Attalah is the Chief Editor of Egypt Independent, a Cairo-based weekly print and online newspaper.

Sharif Abdel Kouddous is a correspondent for Democracy Now! and a fellow at the Nation Institute. He is based in Cairo.

The event will be moderated by Amy Goodman, host of the award-winning independent television and radio program, Democracy Now!
