2011 is not 1968: An open letter to an onlooker on the Day of Rage

2011 is not 1968: An open letter to an onlooker on the Day of Rage

by Philip Rizk Tuesday, January 28, 2014 - 17:42 Editor’s note: If the Palestinian struggle has taught us one thing, it is not to forget, to remember, to retell our stories of resistance over and over again. And it might be that Egypt’s revolutionary voices have hit a point, where remembering, revising and retelling is at the epicenter of their resistance. In this spirit, we asked Philip Rizk to use this space to retell his story of the revolution, as he wrote it in 2012.
