Inspired by the revolution in Tunisia, young Egyptians are leading the ongoing protests in their own country.
Thousands of Egyptians have taken to the streets across the country, demanding political change.
As in Tunisia, no political party or group is orchestrating the protests, although prominent opposition figures and the banned Muslim Brotherhood said they are joining the demonstrations. And in an unprecedented move, Egyptian authorities quickly moved to cut off the internet and mobile phones.
So, how do young Egyptians view the protests and are they hopeful that change will come?
In a special episode of Inside Story from Cairo, presenter Jane Dutton discusses with guests: Gigi Ibrahim, an Egyptian political activist; Amr Waked, an Egyptian actor; and Wael Khalil, an Egyptian blogger and political activist.
This episode of Inside Story aired from Friday, January 28, 2011.
