Beijing celebrates Egypt revolution two years later: The SinoFile
Some keywords remain blocked, but Chinese authorities seem to see the Egyptian Revolution as a cautionary tale against itself.
Today -- January 25th -- marks the second anniversary of Egypt's uprising against dictatorship, and this time China has some things to say about it.
Two years after Chinese censors blocked all digital discourse on Egypt and its nascent uprising, Chinese state-owned and social media are abuzz with talk of violence in the post-revolutionary nation.
Although 埃及暴乱 (aiji baoluan -- Egyptian riot) -- the more common term for the nation's January 25th democracy movement -- has been blocked on Sina Weibo, the term 埃及革命 （aiji geming -- Egyptian revolution) has not, and has elicited a large public response from the social media site's users, many of whom are discussing the the over 100 people injured in protests aiming to take back the revolution today.
