2011 Egypt Protests

Oliver Wilkins shot some interesting footage of the historic uprisings in Egypt recently before government forces cracked down on anyone with a camera.

A British film maker based in Cairo for the past 12 years, he filmed some of the protests with a GoPro and the Canon 550D.

He says:

As a foreign guest living in Egypt I generally try to steer clear of Egyptian politics. However, what has been happening in Tahrir is totally unprecedented. Itโ€™s amazing to see people making signs from anything lying around them in an attempt to get their voices heard
