Women of Rabaa: Shorouq Amjad on Tamarod, Morsi's ouster and the massacre

Shorouq Amjad, once an ardent activist in Egypt's Tamarod movement, offers a raw and detailed account of the events leading up to and following the Rabaa massacre.

The 2013 Tamarod movement rallied against Egypt's Muslim Brotherood, paving the way for a brutal military coup and the massacre that followed.

A decade on, Amjad admits the movement was hijacked and manipulated by the army.
