The most challenging part was finding information that went recent timelines and finding accurate information. the most interesting part was finding out new things about egypt and finding out how even in recent times that they were being treated unfair and fighting back. This changed my outlook on the revolutions ,We must become the change we wish to see in the world so basically saying we have to make a change stay up and speak up if we aren't happy with something. we have to take charge and fight for what we want if we want it. I chose this modern revolution because not that I don't know very much about Egypt but also I didn't know that in present time they were struggling with such unfair treatment.

On 24 May 2011, Mubarak was ordered to stand trial on charges of premeditated murder of peaceful protesters and, if convicted, could face the death penalty.On 2 June 2012 Mubarak was found guilty of complicity in the murder of protesters and sentenced to life imprisonment, but the sentence was overturned on appeal and a retrial ordered.
