“Don’t harass me. The street is yours and mine.”
The group called the campaign “Nefsi” meaning “I wish”. Distributing messages on simple paper sheets to approximately 80 participants, the activists also mobilized through a Facebook group. Women and men of all ages and backgrounds lined the sidewalks of Gam’et El Dewal Street in Mohandessin, a Cairo thoroughfare. They held their messages, ready to engage passersby.
