On February 11th, 2011, the people of Egypt did what very few people imagined was possible: They peacefully forced their dictator of 30 years, Mubarak, to resign and hand over his power to someone else! The hope? That this will be the start of something big! That this will be the dawning of a new age fore the people of Egypt full of democracy and freedom!
When I created my original “Free Egypt” poster, I had no idea that the people of Egypt would be able to achieve something so amazing so fast! My heart goes out to the people of Egypt and I sincerely hope that this works out for the best!

On January 25th, 2011, the people of Egypt took to the streets to protest against a government that they felt was false. They demanded that their “president”, elected in fraudulent elections for 30 years, leave office immediately so that they could have truly free elections and a government that they felt really reflected their concepts and values.
While many of us can’t fight in the streets with them, I wanted to do something to show my solidarity with them and give myself and everyone else a chance to show their support as well.
I created this because, for me, the events in Egypt is the embodiment of what freedom truly means. It is simply inspiring to see the events in Egypt, and I am proud of the people of that country for protesting peacefully. They have taken to the streets, to their cellphones, and social networks to cry out, speak out, and cry out against the tyrants in their land!
They want democracy, TRUE democracy! They want the same rights and freedoms we take for granted daily, and for that I greatly support them!
