The Square ناديمل Guiding questions What unites all people together in the initial protest movement? Why do Islamists and secularists and Christian Copts get along initially? How does this unity dissipate? The first half of the documentary is vibrantly reminiscent of   The Square’s   euphoric spirit and the  pluralistic atmosphere that unified Egyptians - Muslims, Christians, seculars, liberals, Islamists, the  illiterate, the deprived as well as the educated and the wealthy, all under a single banner - a demand for social equity, freedom and justice.  demanding not only the end of President Hosni Mubarak’s regime, but also  an end to corruption, economic injustice and human rights violations. “People  were attacked by police like in other protests, but the difference here was that  people went back in big numbers afterward,” Noujaim explained. “And they  kept coming. They marched toward the square, overtook it, and rejoiced with  millions Her story follows Ahmed, a street poet; Khalid, a famous actor; Magdy, a  member of the Muslim Brotherhood; Ragia, a human rights lawyer; Ramy, a  protest singer; and Aida, a filmmaker. From these various perspectives,  Noujaim poignantly outlines the unity amongst Islamists, members of the army and Christians that marked the first months of protests, and later the schism  between the Muslim Brotherhood, the military and the rest of the Square. What’s the obvious bias of the film regarding the Muslim Brotherhood? Is the perspective of the Muslim Brotherhood granted a voice?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
