'causeyou grew up with him, that's all you know and all you see on TV. His pictures you growp up with everywhere ; it's just completely brain washing. You only know he exists During the Mubarak's regime, life was very hard for everyone . The cost of living had been raised very high . The oppression that tehy live in and how much controlling and the police beating people and the government stealing money and... Hum, I have seen what the man is capable of and I have seen what he has done to a country that was so powerful economically to a crippled country After a while you have to change your mind about how the regime is run. I remember this is going on for quiete some time. - I remember that wednesday when the pro Mubarak portesters appaeard out of nowhere and start attacking the people, that was really difficult They were bombing . the anti government protesters, that had no weapons on them - The police started by throwing tear gas at children and at women and also driving at people with cars using water canons to spray water at some people who were praying This is something against all religions and no one should be able to do this. - The more people got together, the more stories they shared about the lives and about the troubles which made them more people want to join in and anger just sort of show really.

The whole of Cairo was out in the streets. People were really proud you know They had wavig flags and paint in there faces It was just an unbelievable experience It was euphoric, I'll never forget that day in my life - Absolut and utter relief and Happiness . . . After 30 years of oppression the people of Egypt had freedom - I my personal view, I think this was gonna happen sooner or later But even though everyone wanted Mubarak to go I can't stand in front of a mother who's lost her son And say : "that was the right price to pay" [Special thanks to : the El Gabry family, the Affinita family Ahmed Fawaz, Ahmed Abdalsalam, Khaled Ahmed Hamed, Mohamed Atta DIrector : Marco El GABRY First Assistant Director : Kallan Treadwell ; Assistant producer : Rebecca Gadd-Cooke
