Egyptian activists in information war

Grassroots campaign using screenings in streets and squares to expose military rulers' brutal handling of protests.



    Egyptian activists say they are fighting an information war with the country's military rulers.
     
    They say state media has not been reporting truthfully about what they call the army's brutal handling of protests.

    To counter the official narrative, a grassroots campaign called Kazeboon, or Liars, has now been launched.

    By setting up screenings in streets and squares across Egypt, activists say they want their message to be heard in every home.
