It borders at south with Sudan and west with Libya. The seas arr the Mediterranean sea and the Red sea. the capital city is Cairo.
99,6% of the population is arabic.
The total population according to the 2012 survey is 80.264.543 Background to country When did it start and why did the people get angry? The revolution The day of rage was the 25th January 2011. From now on it is a public holiday.
It was the first day of protests. It wasn't the only country! 'The Day Of Rage' The revolution started on the 25th January 2011. Many people of all races, colour or religious view got together against the regime of the egyptian president Hosni Mubarak. It was focused on legal and political issues such as police brutality and lack of free speech, free elections and democracy. It all started when a man called Khaled Saeed was tortured and then murdered by the police because of posting a video on YouTube showing two policemen getting corrupt. The picture of his destroyed face went viral. The relationship with social networks: First of all, before being discovered and taken off by the egyptian government the video was seen by many many people. When Khalid Saeed died, Wael
Ghonim, (an internet activist and computer engineer) created a Facebook page protesting against what had happened. The voice spread, lots of people got together and this led to the revolts. How did they organize themselves? Since that meeting was dangerous and they would've anyway been easily discovered and arrested, the people used social networks to organize revolts, strikes, ect. Egypt wasn't the only one! There was also Tunisia,
in fact Egypt followed it. This picture represents the unity of the Egyprian population
during the revolution: Muslims having their holy prayer and Catholics surrounding them and protecting them. What action did the government take? ... small During the revolts and demonstrations the police arrested many people, shot against them and tried to stop everything. There have been many killed, injured and unfairly arrested. Would've the revolution happened anyway without social networks? Or it would've been a way in between because, for example, after the revolution started the internet and mobile were cut off. But people instead of not going to the revolts turned up to be more and more. People may think it would have happened anyway because they would've found a way to organize themselves. It depends from the points of view! Or it wouldn't have happened. Because the video would've never been published, the group never been created and so the people wouldn't have had so much motivation and subsequently they wouldn't have found a way to organize themselves, discuss and start everything. In conclusion, the internet and social networks had a very important role in the revolution. And, would've everything happened if they didn't exist? How would Egypt and Tunisia be now without them? By Laura, G9A Egypt today
A president, for the first time has been elected democratically. His name is Mohamed Morsi.
