V-Day Statement on Tunisian and Egyptian Revolutions
For almost two months, the world has witnessed the true power and strength that dedicated, bold, and courageous people can have over their lives, their governments, and their countries. The revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt have changed their nations forever, and are important and beautiful reminders that when people trust and find their voices, when they stand for their truth and commit to going all the way, when they put aside their fears and embrace their own self worth, the world will change. The Tunisian and Egyptian people have given the world an incredible gift, a model to all people everywhere. It is up to us now to continue this revolution, to embrace this paradigm, to stand up for our neighbors and ourselves. Now is the time for those that have been repressed, those who have had their rights, their economic futures, their freedoms robbed, to rise and speak out. And as we have learned from these recent events, revolution begins with one courageous soul, and can become a gorgeous contagion.
V-Day stands in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Tunisia and Egypt, with people everywhere who are reclaiming their power and voice, and bringing the revolution home.
