Esraa Abdel Fattah was interviewed last year by the organization Human Rights First on how she is using social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, in order to rally support for a change in governmental policies. The video addresses how Fattah has used these mass means of communication in order to organize protests and strikes. This video also brings up the question of public Internet use and censorship: How far can the media affect social retaliation and uprisings? Fattah is ambitious and faithful in her use of the Internet: “We are going to monitor the next presidential elections with new media” (humanrightsfirst.org).
