Protester Reflects on Five Years since Tahrir Square Protests

This week marks the 5th anniversary of the beginning of protests in Egypt, which eventually became known as the “Arab Spring.” Five years ago hundreds of thousands of people across Egypt, especially in Cairo’s Tarir Square, assembled to demand the ouster of longtime dictator, Hosni Mubarak. We’ll talk with Egyptian writer, Salma Hussein, about the plight of many of her friends, who she says are now imprisoned for speaking out against the government. Guest: Salma Hussein is an Egyptian activist and blogger for the January 25th Movement.
