Tahrir Square, Cairo

Some days, some nights, Tahrir Square in Cairo, during february 2011. A very special year in the arab world in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrein and finally Syria and its catastrophic consequences...

But in february 2011 in Cairo, it's happiness right now : the president, Hosni Moubarak, has just announced that he will resign and quit the power. This is the result of several weeks of demonstartions on Tahrir Square, with some very violent episodes.

There will be a lot of others episodes after it with the election of Mohamed Morsi, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and later the comeback of military force with Abdel Fattah Al-Sissi.

Quelques jours, quelques nuits, Place Tahrir au Caire, au mois de février dans cette année 2011. Une année qui allait voir successivement se lever les populations de Tunisie, d'Egypte, de Lybie, du Yemen, du Bahrein et enfin de Syrie, avec l'engrenage désastreux qui s'en est suivi pour ce pays. En ce début d'année, c'est plutôt la joie qui domine. Le président Moubarak vient d'annoncer qu'il se retirait du pouvoir, après un bras de fer long de plusieurs semaines avec les manifestants regroupés sur la Place Tahrir, au centre du Caire. De nombreux rebondissements suivront, avec l'élection puis la destitution de Mohamed Morsi, leader politique des Frères Musulmans, et la reprise en main du pays à nouveau par un militaire, Abdel Fattah al-Sissi.
