Egyptian Revolutionary Asmaa Mahfouz Speaks at Occupy Wall Street.

Occupy Wall Street received a surprise visit Monday from several leading Egyptian activists, including 26-year-old Asmaa Mahfouz. She is one of the founders of the April 6 Youth Movement, which is the group credited with helping to organize the January 25 protests that eventually toppled the regime of former president Hosni Mubarak.Prior to the protest in January, Mahfouz recorded a YouTube video urging people to fill Tahrir Square.

Democracy Now!'s Amy Goodman spoke to her at Occupy Wall Street on October 25, 2011. Asmaa said, "Many U.S. residents were in solidarity with us. I am here to be in solidarity and support the Wall Street Occupy protesters, to say to them, ’the power to the people,' and to keep it on and on, and they will succeed in the end."

 

Asmaa Mahfouz on Democracy Now!ASMAA MAHFOUZ: Because I saw many people died because there were demanding their rights, and actually all of our rights, but they’re dead. So I decided to go to the street and demand all of our rights and our freedom, even if I being alone, and just make a video and said to all the men in our country, "If you are a real man, you have to come with me to protect me and protect our country." And I can’t believe it when I saw million of people go and join in the Tahrir Square. And now I believe that I’m not be afraid—I’m not a more brave, because I saw my colleagues, Egyptian, were going towards the policemen, when they just pushing us, and they died for all of us. So they are the one who are really brave and really strong.
