Along with producing amazing photography, the camera has a role in documenting a nation’s struggle for freedom and a better future. Photos taken during strikes and protests can tell a million stories about how people feel and how they try to change their future with their own hands.

The below collection shows the struggle of the Egyptian people against the regime, during the Friday of Anger and the week after it.
