UPDATE: 2/12/2011 : It brought to my attention that the original source who uploaded this video on the Facebook goes to Mostafa Emil. This video was circulated until it came to my Facebook page. Thanks to Alison Bryan for the tip. This video was embedded from the original website called : http://www.almasryalyoum.com/multimedia/video/and type Deaf in a search field.
Many thanks to Jean Boutcher for finding this video, and Sheri Ann Farinha for sharing this to our tight-knit Deaf Facebook community. The video includes three Deaf Egyptians explaining why they are protesting against Hosni Mubarak’s regime, using Egyptian Sign Language.
One person offered a brief translation of what these men were saying,
“Basically, he is saying… Even though he works, there’s not enough money to bring home, even afford his wife meager sustenance, lacking socks, basic necessities, and living with bare minimums. They are saying that their lives are similar to that of a blind beggar. I hope this helps. I really am grateful you shared this video!”
I consider these men brave and courageous to be there protesting for their freedom!
Mubarak stepped down, and Egyptian military took over today.
I wish these Deaf Egyptians know that all of us are watching this news. Is there an organization where we all can help by contributing something? Please leave a comment below if you do have this information.
