Cairo, Egypt (April 2017)
 


AUC GraffitiTahrir Square Cairo Tower Pyramid
Political graffiti on walls of AUC's old campus. The regime painted over  graffiti from the Arab Spring, but new graffiti has replaced it.


Tahrir Square, site of the 2011 protests, where upwards of a million people converged to demand the removal of Mubarak from power, democracy, as well as social and economic justice.
Cairo Tower. Apparently built by Nasser from money the US offered as a bribe in order to embarrass the US. Not sure if Nasser was insulted by the bribe or the amount offered.
Giza Pyramids. Antiquities sold on the black market are a major source of funding for ISIS and other terrorist groups.  Let's seem them try to move this one.
