DescriptionThe Arab Spring revolution in Egypt fought against the thirty-year regime of President Hosni Mubarak through anti-government and pro-democracy protests. Inspired by the successful revolution in Tunisia weeks beforehand, the Egyptian protests began in January 2011. This sticker, written in Egyptian colloquial Arabic, is one in a series of four with colorful political messages. The empowering slogan at the top of each sticker من دلوقتي حاعرف حقي means: "Starting this moment, I know my right." In the center, the phrase العملية الانتخابية translates to "the electoral process." At the bottom, the text يعني صوتي أنا يعيّن رئيس الجمهورية means: "my voice (vote) will decide the president of the republic."
SubjectArab Spring, 2010-; revolutions -- Arab countries; revolutions -- Egypt; protest movements; democratization -- Middle East; democracy; politics & government; voting; elections; civil rights; calligraphy, Arabic
