Why Riot?

Loading the player...

Remember the Egyptian uprisings that overthrew the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak? Remember when North American pacifists where claiming this as a victory, achieved through non-violence, even though the images of Mubarak party headquarters on fire told a different story? Two years after the “revolution” Mosireen a radical media collective based in Cairo, drops an incendiary visual manifesto that asks the question, “Why Riot?” I wonder how the pacifists will spin this one.

From the YouTube page:

Two years after the start of the January 25 revolution we still riot because the ruling elite still exploit us, because the police still torture, maim and kill us and none of them are brought to justice.
