Dan Morrison article on Shayfeen.com

Dan Morrrison has written a piece on Ghada Shahbandar and Shayfeen.com.

A little more than a year after organizing the white ribbon campaign, launched in the wake of, and as a response to the violence and sexual harassment towards female activists and journalists by NDP thugs on black referendum day, the 25th of May 2005, shayfeen.com, has been involved in election and human rights monitoring, and the campaign for a free judiciary, among other things. Based on ordinary peopleĀ“s participation and commitment towards having the rights to express their own voice and choice, in a free polity and society.

As every modern democratic movement today, they also have their own soundrack, this is perhaps the Egyptian equivalent to the Ukraine orange revolution anthem, Razom nas bahato!
