egypt uprising

it all began on 25 January 2011 and took place across all of Egypt. The date was set by various youth groups to coincide with the annual Egyptian "police day" as a statement against increasing police brutality during the last few years of Mubarak's presidency this uprising started in 2011 what really started it all off was the president was doing things like adding on taxes,lack of free elections and freedom of speech, corruption, and economic issues including high unemployment, food-price inflation and low wages. he also was doing some crimanal things so the people where getting angry.

As some time went by the president did nothing to improve these things so they people started protesting they did sit ins in front of his house. they started marching down city streets trying to get the city's attention no one seemed to notice after weeks and weeks of peaceful protest the people got feed up.

after many weeks of not getting results the people did something they would notice many people started taking there own life setting themselves on fire in protest ,death by cops , mas bombings they would fight back in the streets with the police.Protesters called for Mubarak to step down immediately, clearing the way for free elections and democracy. As the demonstrations gathered strength, the Mubarak regime resorted to increasingly violent tactics against protesters. he had the police take action against the protesters Protesters called for Mubārak to step down immediately, clearing the way for free elections and democracy. As the demonstrations gathered strength, the Mubārak regime resorted to increasingly violent tactics against protesters.

Mubarak's attempts to placate the protesters with concessions, including a pledge to step down at the end of his term in 2011 and naming Omar Suleiman as vice president—the first person to serve as such in Mubarak's nearly three-decade presidency—did little to quell the unrest. After almost three weeks of mass protests in Egypt, Mubārak stepped down as president, leaving the Egyptian military in control of the country.

after he fled the country he still tried to make decisions for the country so the people pushed for him to be arrested for all of his crimes he committed in Egypt. after 8 days he was arrested and sentences 20 years in jail
