A Thousand Times No

April 17, 2016

Poster by Bahia Shehab.

How do you join a revolution? Egyptian artist Bahia Shehab says she was too quiet to shout in the streets during the uprising in Cairo, so she started spraying graffiti with the word "no" in Arabic. No to military rule. No to emergency law. No to killing. She tells Charles Monroe-Kane how her art became a rallying cry during the protests against the Mubarak regime.



Thank you for saying "NO"
