The army has erased most of the revolutionary graffiti and murals in Mohamed Mahmoud Street.
On 17 February 2012, the local residents and shop owners in Mohamed Mahmoud Street hired a crane on their private expense, to remove the wall erected by the Egyptian army to block protesters during the November 2011 uprising.
The shop owners were not comfortable getting filmed and they asked me to stop filming, which I did. They spoke of “their interests and livelihood destroyed because of the wall.” Their unease with the filming clearly demonstrates this act was done without permission from the army necessarily.
Before heading to the Ministry of Defense march yesterday, I paid a brief visit to Mohamed Mahmoud Street, and took some quick shots of the new beautiful mural, set up to commemorate the Ultras martyrs…
