The Power of Man, The Demise of Mama Earth

The Revolution Continues: Ahmed Salah and the Arab Spring

“I was anticipating a breakthrough -- hoping that the protest would not be instantly dispersed by riot police, like so many previous marches.

-Ahmed Salah, speaking to Washington Post reporter Jackson Diehl
