Abstract

The last time I endeavored to write academically about human rights and freedoms in Egypt was prior to 2011. Back then, I did not have direct contact with victims of human rights abuse. I was also never on a site in which human rights violations were being perpetuated as they were being perpetuated. Back then, I was not a victim of violations of my right to express myself and move freely. 1 Since 2011, all of that has changed dramatically.
