Asmaa Mahfouz

It is crazy trying to trace out the beginning of what became the Egyptian Revolution of 25th January 2011 but surely a lot leads back to the young women on this You Tube piece

She is Asmaa Mahfouz and it is worth looking at this again just over a month after it went live.

When people say that one individual does not make a difference, just think back to this.  This young women saw off a thirty odd year tyrant and a brutal police force that was one of the most brutal in the world.  Not bad huh …
