Egyptian Revolution 001 by MahmoudYakut Egyptian Revolution 001 by MahmoudYakut
01.02.2011, The march of the millions: it was the most wonderful experience in my life, more that 1.5 million human beings marching in the streets of Alexandria alone, all sharing the same dream of freedom...

Please support the Egyptian people in anyway in their battle for freedom, you can just send an email to your governments or representatives asking them to not support the Egyptian regime headed by Mubarak, thank you....

Update: Egypt is free, Mubarak is gone.... please support us rebuilding our country :blowkiss:

Suggester says, "I think "march of the millions" sums it up neatly...the ability to convey not only the amount of people participating in such an event, but the fact that each and every one of them holds this cause close to themselves, and then to do this in black and white without alienating the audience takes brilliance with a camera."

A brilliant picture of a brilliant event. No-one should have to suffer under a tyrany. I haven't heard anything from Egypt for awhile so I hope things are going well over there.

The light catching the tops of all those people's heads makes each one an individual, and really sets this apart as a great piece of photojournalism, rather than a good news shot, I think

Wow. Here in Chile, we had a dictatorship that lasted 16 years. I still remember the joy of the people when it finished, by the people and for the people, by democratic means.

Congratulations to the Egyptian people: "el pueblo, unido, jamás será vencido" (People, united, will be never defeated).

Amazing. Just amazing.

I'm over here in my little bubble of a world; I don't watch tv, I don't read the news, and my friends are more concerned with talking about midterms than current events. I had heard some news about the Egyptian revolution, but not very much. Honestly, I felt so far removed that it seemed like just another piece of news to me.

But your picture instantly changed my perspective. You captured such incredible energy and emotion. Even though I'm still miles away living in my bubble, I somehow feel so much closer and more connected than before. I feel that I have a deeper sense of the impact of the revolution, not just on the country as a whole, but also on the lives of each individual.

This photograph has changed my perception and helped me see beyond my own little world. For this, I cannot thank you enough. :thanks:

Thank you very much Sarah, your words make me so happy, this is what any photographer or artist wish and dream about... to change the perspective of someone through his art and make a difference :cuddle: ... I hope you will expand the borders of your little world a bit and keep a window there to peak at the other side every now and then :D

Whilst I enjoy their battle for freedom and that they found success, they killed an american reporter and raped another one in a rampage, many have died. Its quite tragic.

An excellent photo among many others of this revolution I've seen. I can only hope the military, now in command (it's said in the US) are "listening, hearing" the people and not Mubarak or his followers. Congratulations on the DD. It's deserved.

I hate to be so negative, but the struggle will be far from over when and if Mubarak is expelled.
