Egypt Today: Transition or Coup

How can this diverse nation create and enforce a constitution that will protect its citizen’s rights in accordance with international standards? What will the new structure of the government look like and who are the political forces involved in its creation? 

Join panelists Salma El Shakre and Ahmed Salah in exploring these complex questions.

Ahmed Salah is an Egyptian activist, former member of the Kefaya movement, and co-founder ofthe April 6th movement. He specializes in non-violent action, has been a prominent demonstrator against the Mubarak regime in Cairo over the past decade, and played a key role in the January 25th revolution.

Salma El Shakre is an Egyptian American activist with the ANSWER Coalition and an associate producer
at Link TV. She participated in the July 8th demonstrations, calling for Mubarak to be put to trial and took part in the Occupy San Francisco movement. She will discuss the role of women during the revolution.
