Mohamed Abdel Dayem, the program coordinator for the Middle East & North Africa for the Committee to Protect Journalists, is interviewed on Democracy Now! just hours after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned February 11, 2011. Dayem said that, "journalists now can report openly and aren't afraid to take out their cameras." However, CPJ is sending a strong message to the new Egyptian leadership that freedom of the press should be honored.
Dayem was interviewed in part of a special live Democracy Now! broadcast. To watch the entire show: http://www.democracynow.org/blog/2011/2/11/the_egyptian_revolution_a_democracy_now_special_on_mubaraks_resignation
