"When I was there in 2011-2012, there were deadly riots and protests. Various events happening in which Tahrir was overwhelmed with protesters and people were being shot at and killed. I have Egyptian friends who would go and be there to try to be on the side of the protesters, and be there to help them and take them to medics who were set up in Tahrir and around those areas, so when people were killed or injured in those confrontations with the security apparatus, they could hopefully get medical attention from volunteer civilians on the street."

In this video, a linguist discusses the 2011 revolution in Egypt.
