Clashes Across Egypt

Jan 28, 2013 - Two years after the start of the revolution that overthrew 30-year ruler Hosni Mubarak, many Egyptians say that the repression that sparked the revolution remains.

On January 25, protesters took to the streets throughout the country to mark the second anniversary of the revolution. In several cities, police responded with tear gas and clubs, resulting in dozens of deaths and a new wave of protests, this time aimed at calling for President Mohamed Morsi to step down. On the 27th, Morsi declared a one-month state of emergency in Suez, Port Said, and Ismailia, suspending the judicial process and many civil rights.
