|Inspiring Photos from the Facebook Group Behind Egypt's Revolution Slideshow: The Photos Inspiring Egypt's Protest Movement|
The revolution in Egypt is fueled by decades of repressed struggle and a yearning to breathe free. The protests in Tahrir Square, however, aren't just a raw purge of rage at President Hosni Mubarak. They're the product of some well timed online organizing, that has coalesced around a six-month-old Facebook group.
"We are all Khaled Said" was created anonymously and named after a blogger who was brutally beaten to death and left in the street by Egyptian authorities. It slowly grew to become the online version of Tahrir Square, a central meeting place for the vanguard of the opposition calling for an end to Mubarak's rule.
We now know the page was created by activist and Google executive, Wael Ghonim who served two weeks in Egyptian prison for his online efforts. He's recently been released and is reluctantly taking credit for the page.
"We are all Khaled Said" has amassed more than 600,000 fans and evolved into a central news hub for the movement with a constant stream of information on the latest developments. It also has some inspiring, striking, and chilling photos.
Here's a slideshow of a few of them posted in recent days helping to keep morale high among the Egyptian protesters. Some are from the English language sister page, which has also translated a statement of purpose into more than 15 languages. Impressive signs of solidarity abound.
Posted on the English language Facebook page. The sign, directed at Mubarak, reads "Leave before we run out of oxygen."
