The 12-Year-Old Egyptian Boy Feared by Global Goverments

This video of 12-year-old Ali Ahmed speaking about the protest in Egyptali-ahmed.png is one of the most moving political opinions you will hear – perhaps ever. After all, this is a child and yet he is more engaged in his government than most Americans… He understands the political process, has facts, worries about the rights of women – is concerned about the abuse of power by his government and speaks with a confidence which is absolutely awe-inspiring.

The video was recorded last October and already has seen tremendous viewership in China until it was banned.

Thanks to the internet, the views of a single global citizen – regardless of age can bring a nation and perhaps a globe to its knees, changing power structures and influencing the ideas of perhaps hundreds of millions.

Here is an excerpt – the video is a much watch and there is more from David Feith.

I’m here today to help prevent Egypt from becoming a commodity owned by one person and to protest the confiscation of the constitution by one single party. We didn’t get rid of a military regime to replace it with a fascist theocracy.

The social objectives of the [2011] revolution are yet to be achieved. Economic empowerment, freedom, and social justice. There are still no jobs. The police still jail people randomly. As for social justice, how can a news anchor get 30 million Egyptian pounds, while some people still pick food from the garbage?
