In their call for radical political change in Egypt in the run-up to the 2011 protests, anti-regime columnists aimed to convince their readers that bringing down Mubarak's regime was desirable and feasible, arguing that peaceful mass protests were the only way to achieve this. Ahmed Omar analyses columns by Alaa Al Aswany, a famous novelist and political activist, focusing on the strategies he used to convince his readers of the possibility that the police could be defeated through mass protests and that the protests would bring down Mubarak's regime.
