CBC Radio's "The Current"
7 February 2011
CAIRO - Egypt's capital Cairo is returning to a more normal frenzy after nearly two weeks of anti-government protests that brought the city to a standstill. Yesterday, the banks re-opened, people went back to work, and police were back on the streets.
But Egypt remains deeply affected. The protests have not only divided the country, but in the extended absence of government services, they've also forced many neighbourhoods to organize themselves and create a kind of grassroots democracy Egypt was always lacking.
Heba Aly takes us beyond the protests, to how people have been living outside Tahrir Square in her documentary: The Price to Pay.
