25 January & Tahrir at Night

Two quick pics:
1. kids with Egyptian flags on the Lion at the start of the Kubri Qasr el-Nil (Nile Palace Bridge);
2. the 25 January group (the "youth group" that led the revolution and keeps pushing for improvements across the country) - here, 25 January members painted a "no stopping" on the bridge.

25 January members are:
directing traffic around Tahrir and downtown (while regular police stand idly by, intimidated and perhaps ashamed (?) of their unforgivable actions during the protests;
reminding people to "buckle up"!
cleaning the streets (25 Jan. plus lots of other, newly emerging citizen groups - church groups, mosque groups, schools across the country, etc.)
painting curbs
and so much more ...
