how the uprising in Egypt began, on a beach, with Facebook

Three summers ago on a litter-strewn beach in Alexandria, I tagged along with a group of young Egyptian dissidents for a little civil disobedience. The goal was to fly a kite painted the colors of the country’s flag, and hand out pro-democracy leaflets. They also considered singing some patriotic songs.

A poignant and fascinating story.
