Tweets from Tahrir Square report violent sexual assault, harassment on second anniversary of uprising

On the second anniversary of the Egyptian uprising that overthrew Hosni Mubarak, disturbing reports are coming in of harassment and sexual assault as thousands gather to protest in Tahrir Square.

A Black Bloc demonstrator was reportedly involved in at least one incident.

As Twitchy reported in November, the @TahrirBodyguard account was created to help mobilize volunteers to combat attacks on women in Tahrir Square. One of the victims brought to @TahrirBodyguard’s attention was reportedly a 14-year-old girl.

@OpAntiSH is also reportedly responding to reports of assault and harassment.

A revolution where women are terrorized by mob attacks and sexual violence isn’t what freedom looks like.

But despite the violence, many women refuse to be silenced and continue to speak out against tyranny and oppression:

    You are FRAUDS. You should be ashamed of yourselves for running cover on behalf of this President you dragged onto the world stage to bless and encourage the political group in Egypt that is perpetrating this barbarity.


    On your behalf, I guess you were silent on Bill Clinton as well. So you’re consistent.

      And a war on Christians, not your phony baloney cries of “anti-Christian persecution” from American Evangelicals.

    I’m guessing that any organize assaults are being run by muslim brotherhood supporters/henchmen. islam views women as having less value than livestock. Can’t expect them to treat their women any better than they treat their animals. And usually the animal gets better treatment.

      Because clearly a strongly worded tweet from Sandra Fluke is what is needed to stop this. Why aren’t you over there putting on a safety vest?
