(This document reflects some research I did on Egyptian revolution before acting out a play concerning it.) Voice and movement Prof. Holly Thuma The Egyptian Revolution The Egyptian revolution occurred following a very popular battle that began on Tuesday, 25 January 2011 and is still apparently continuing as of November 2011. This battle was mainly a campaign of non-violent civil resistance, which featured various, marches and forms of civil disobedience, and labor strikes. Millions of protesters from a variety of and religious and social backgrounds demanded the overthrow of the regime of Hosni Mubarak. He was the president of Egypt at that time. The revolution was, for the most part, peaceful in nature, but there were definitely a few instances of violence between police forces and protesters, approximately 846 people were killed and 6,000 were injured. The uprising took place in Cairo, Alexandria, and in other cities in Egypt. On 11 February, following weeks of determined popular protest and pressure, Mubarak resigned from office.

    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.
