My name is Marlena Chertock. I am a sophomore at Elon University. I’m majoring in Journalism, with a Print and Online concentration, and minoring in Non-Violence Studies and Creative Writing.
This is my Web curation blog for my Editing and Design course. I will be posting an assortment of articles, links, videos and information to direct readers to learn more about the Egyptian and Middle East protests of 2011. The democracy protests in Egypt have been going on since Jan. 25, 2011. I will not be doing the reporting for these articles, this blog serves as a collection of articles and other sources of information on this topic.
The Web address for this blog is based off Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.” I’m greatly influenced by and have a love for revolution songs.
“Won’t you help to sing these songs of freedom.” -Bob Marley, Redemption Song
