Egyptian revolution (Elementary)

In January 2011, men, women and children all took to the streets in Egypt to protest about the way the country was being run.

In the demonstrations people marched, waved banners, sang protest songs and shouted that they wanted the President, Hosni Mubarak, to leave.

Egyptians complained that there was a big gap between rich and poor people, that lots of people couldn't find a job and that the government was corrupt.

They also felt that they didn't have a say in how the country was run and that they weren't free to say what they wanted.
