Egypt’s youth 'have had enough'

Though many of the youth leaders who participated in the 2011 revolution are in prison, youth-driven political campaigns will continue under President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

CAIRO — The movements and campaigns of Egyptian political life are still largely youth-driven. During the era of President Hosni Mubarak, the April 6 Youth Movement arose and during the Mohammed Morsi era, the Tamarod campaign emerged. Now, under President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, similar movements are gaining prominence.

The latest, “We Have Had Enough,” was created by a number of young activists, including political activists from former movements, such as April 6.
