Programme Note:
Viewing footage on YouTube, I was completely shocked by the brutality of the violent crackdown on protesters in Cairo, Egypt on August 14, 2013. Within hours, hundreds were killed as army bulldozers cleared encampments that were occupied by people protesting the removal, by the army, of the democratically elected president. Live ammunition and tear gas were used as people ran for their lives or tried to save the injured. Despite the carnage, many protesters were defiant. Many chanted political slogans and fought back. This piece attempts to depict the horror of that day.
