When the BBC announced it was publishing a photo book of photos of the Arab Spring in 2011, the news was greeted with excitement.
A photo book was supposed to tell a story, to tell us about what we were seeing.
But instead of telling a story about the people and the events of that time, the BBC decided to tell the story of a photo-op.
The project, which has since been cancelled, would have provided the BBC with a platform for journalists to share their images, in the hopes of making a story more widely known.
The photo book itself was a very ambitious undertaking, and its publication was postponed to December.
The story of the photo-book was to be told by the people of Egypt, a country that had already seen a massive wave of protests against the military dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak.
The Arab Spring, which swept across the region in 2011 and was later known as the Arab Awakening, brought about a massive change in the political landscape.
For many in the Arab world, it was the beginning of a new, more stable, and more democratic era.
This, in turn, led to a surge of anti-government protests that swept through the region, and culminated in the ouster of the authoritarian regime of Hosam Ali Abdel Aziz, who was succeeded by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in 2013.
As Al Jazeera has noted, the Arab uprising began with a series of protests that took place in 2011.
The protests began as a spontaneous, non-violent movement.
The first protest was held in Tahrir Square in Cairo.
The next protest was in Tunisia’s capital, Tunis.
In 2011, protesters across the Arab region and the world, who had previously been largely excluded from politics, took to the streets in protest against the autocratic regime of President Hosni al-Assad in Syria.
The Syrian civil war was the first major uprising since the Arab-Israeli war of 1948.
For several years, the Syrian uprising had been dominated by opposition figures, including the likes of Mohammed Dahlan, an activist who was later jailed and tortured for his role in the 2011 uprising.
Dahlan died in a Damascus hospital in 2017, at the age of 82.
The uprising in Syria was led by a small group of revolutionaries, many of whom had fought alongside the armed group known as Jaish al-Islam, or the Free Syrian Army.
The Free Syrian army is considered a terrorist group by the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, and is responsible for numerous attacks on Syrian government forces.
In 2013, the Free Syria Army attacked the headquarters of the Lebanese army, killing nine members of the security forces.
During the course of the uprising, the people in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and elsewhere came together to organize peaceful demonstrations, calling for an end to the regime of al-Mabhouh.
Many protesters took to Tahrir square in Cairo, holding banners calling for the return of the country’s long-stalled transition to democracy.
The protesters held up placards with slogans such as “Death to the state” and “Death for the dictator.”
In 2013 and 2014, the protests in Egypt were marked by a series, or “tourism days,” of demonstrations that attracted hundreds of thousands of people, with demonstrations in cities such as Cairo and Tunis and in towns and cities across the country.
Thousands of protesters were arrested, many were tortured and killed.
As of 2016, Egypt had more than 1,000 protests.
The number of arrests and violent clashes in Egypt was one of the highest in the world.
For a number of years, it remained a relatively peaceful period in Egypt.
In March 2018, the regime and its military supporters began to crack down on the protests.
By April 2018, Egyptian security forces had killed hundreds of demonstrators and arrested tens of thousands.
Protesters were detained and tortured.
The government announced that it would introduce the death penalty for those who participated in protests.
A few days later, in April 2019, a military court convicted nine members in connection with a number a attacks on security forces and protesters.
On May 30, 2020, President Sisi was sworn in as the countrys new leader.
Sisi, who took office on January 1, 2019, was widely hailed as a strongman who would rid Egypt of the regime that had oppressed the people for years.
But as he made his way through the streets of Cairo, he faced widespread opposition.
Protests, which had begun with a few dozen people in the capital, quickly snowballed into an all-out assault on his rule.
Some protesters had taken to the street to call for the ousting of the president.
Some had taken up arms to defend their leaders.
A number of people were injured, including one protester who died in hospital.
In April 2020, protesters occupied the presidential palace, where they were surrounded by security forces, who shot and killed at least five people.
The following month, in late June, Egypt
