Young Egyptians campaign for change

Despite resistance from the government, young Egyptians are agitating for reforms.

    Young Egyptians - fed up with the traditional political parties – are spreading their own message of social justice ahead of the parliamentary election on Sunday. 

    Rights groups say the vote will be neither free nor fair and there have been a series of government crackdowns against the media and opposition supporters in the run-up to the poll.

    But, as Jacky Rowland reports, youth activism is going down well in the working class neighbourhoods of Alexandria.
