Cairo Guide: Useful Resources for 'Tamarod' in Egypt
Published On: 01/07/2013

Tamarod is the word on the streets of Cairo. Egypt, once again, has the spotlight firmly placed on it. As the world watches, Cairenes from all corners of the capital – and Egyptians from beyond – are making their voices heard.

Here at Cairo 360, we want to do all we can to support our fellow Cairenes by passing on some vital information; from Twitter to Tahrir Square, here is everything you need to stay on top of everything.



Reporting Sexual Harassment

An unfortunate and baffling phenomenon that continues to betray the spirit of the continuing Egyptian Revolution, we've seen a brave few – namely Tahrir Bodygaurd, Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment and Harassmap come to the aid of those who find themselves in danger. Any cases of sexual harassment spotted should be reported via the following:

News & Opinions on Twitter

Everyone will have their say, constructive and otherwise, but there are a few that provide up-to-the-minutes news, images and views. Journalists, Jack ShenkerBen WedemenSharif Kouddous and Evan Hill spend most of their time in and around affected areas, while popular bloggers-come-Twitter-celebrities such as Mahmoud 'Sandmonkey' Salem, Hossam '3arabawy' and the 'The Arabist' can always be counted on for a few nuggets of wisdom. But for some really interesting analysis of the protests, look no further than the Muslim Brotherhood's official Twitter account, Ikhwanweb. 

Of course, there are many more; the following hashtags will get you where you need to be:

#Egypt#Moqattam#June30#itahidiya#Tamarod #tahrir #morsi

Stay safe, Cairo.
