Nine “Dank” Movement Members Released On Bail

An Egyptian prosecutor decided on Thursday to release nine members of the new “Dank” youth movement on a bail of 5,000 Egyptian pounds for each of them.

Dank, a new youth movement that came into the spotlight recently as media outlets circulated a video of three masked men claiming to be movement members from Suez and calling for protests on Tuesday under the banner of “the revolution of the poor.”

In the released video, the movement’s members criticised the government for “the suffering of the poor and wasting Egyptians’ rights.”

The police arrested at least 24 people who organised Tuesday’s protest in downtown Cairo for “violating the protest law.”

The movement’s name translates into “hardship” or “bleakness”.
