Editor's Note:

This is a special effort from the Editor to the readers of Al-Jazeerah to show them some of the aspects of the Egyptian Revolution against the dictator Mubarak and his regime.
The videos include scenes of the protests, chants, slogans, and songs of the revolution. Though they are all in Arabic, they will reach the hearts because they are coming out of the hearts of the Egyptian people, who suffered a lot on the hands of Mubarak and his dictatorial, oppressive, and corrupt regime.

There will be other similar pages about other Arab revolutions.


The Most Decisive Moments in the Egyptian Revolution:
January 25, 2011
The first day of the revolution

The Egyptian security forces attacked protesters on the Tahrir Bridge with hot, boiling water, to prevent them from reaching the Tahrir Square.

Determined to reach the Square, the protesters response was to start prayers to get strength from God, Who gave them His support. They did not run away, while the security forces did. Then, they proceeded to the Tahrir Square, occupied it, allowing more protesters to reach it, launching the revolution all over the squares of the country.
