Egypt Pride (Doc)

The protests that toppled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak did more than bring down an unpopular regime. They brought back to Egyptians a sense of pride in their country - a feeling that had been missing for decades. The Current's Heba Aly was in Cairo during the protests. We aired her documentary, Now That It's Mine.



It's Monday February 21st.

Quebec has just launched a "permanent anti-corruption squad".

Currently, I would be more optimistic if the squad wasn't permanent.

This is The Current.

PART ONE

It has been just over a week since Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was brought down by a wave of anti-government protests. But the story didn't end there. Those protests did more than bring down an unpopular regime. They have returned to the Egyptian people a feeling of pride - a sense of ownership in their country that has been missing for decades. And along with that change, has come the realization that another kind of revolution will be needed to change the Egyptian psyche for good.

The Current's Heba Aly was in Cairo during the revolution. Here's her documentary, Now That It's Mine.
