Amy Goodman to moderate panel "Egypt: A Revolution Continues"

New York City, NY

April 12, 2013 | Friday | 6:00 pm

NYU Cantor Film Center

36 East 8th Street, Theater 101
New York City, NY ( see map )
Democracy Now! Host Amy Goodman will moderate a panel discussion with Sharif Abdel Kouddous, Democracy Now! correspondent and a fellow at the Nation Institute, and Lina Attalah, Chief Editor of Egypt Independent, a Cairo-based weekly print and online newspaper.

The struggle in Egypt that began in 2011 and inspired people around the world is at a critical juncture. Amidst a deadlock between the Muslim Brotherhood and the opposition, the persistence of police brutality and state institutions of the old regime, and a looming economic crisis, the divide between political elites and people is growing ever wider. The panelists will discuss how much has changed since the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak in 2011 and the prospects for political change in the future.

This evening is co-sponsored by:
The Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies (NYU)
The Nation Institute
Network of Arab-American Professionals of NY
The Arab and Middle Eastern Journalists Association
Alwan for the Arts
