Mubarak and the 2011 Egyptian Revolution
The events in late January and early February of 2011 in Egypt were intense to say the least. The people of Egypt started an uprising on January 25, 2011 which featured various demonstrations, labor strikes and violent disputes between protestors and supporters of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s regime. After 18 days of protests, Mubarak eventually stepped down.
The data is certainly interesting to look at in this format and it’s quite amazing to see exactly how popular Al Jazeera became during this historical event.
