This blog deals with the Egyptian revolution that began on January 25, 2011. It starts with postings from Brian Barber's stay in Egypt between February 18 and March 13 when he observed the immediate aftermath of the revolution and began studying youth involvement in it. Funding was then received from the Jacobs Foundation, Switzerland to do quarterly interviews with key youths, a national survey, and a documentary. The CO-PI is James Youniss of Catholic University, DC.

Moved on the Gaza
March 15 was the day set aside in Palestine for youth to protest. I left Cairo on the 13th to get to Gaza on time.
