When in December 2010 Egyptian citizens started to crowd the streets demanding reforms and democracy it took them only 9 month to force long term president Mubarak to reseign. 

At our Wednesday meeting on October 19, Amr Bargisi of the Egyptian Union of Liberal Youth will give a short talk about the forces behind the Egyptian Spring, and to what extend the demands are or were met.
