    Ahmed talks to Timour Azhari and Joey Ayoub about the massive popular movement against the entire political order which has rocked Lebanon for over 2 weeks. It has led to the end of the government already, but can it achieve the real goal - total systemic change?

    029 - Art vs Repression, from Egypt to Hong Kong - with Amr Waked & Denise Ho

    Celebrities are notoriously shy of politics, advised to stay neutral for the sake of their careers. But what do you do when you can no longer be silent?

    Denise Ho, a singer and actress from Hong Kong, and Amr Waked, an Egyptian actor, discuss their journeys into activism, what it meant for their careers, the regimes they fight against and how their art plays a role.

    Denise and Amr can be found on Twitter (@hoccgoomusic and @amrwaked).

    028 - In the Mirror: What Went Wrong with the Arab Spring?

    028 - In the Mirror: What Went Wrong with the Arab Spring?

    At the Oslo Freedom Forum last year, 7 activists from the Arab region found ourselves in a room together. This is the discussion which followed - on identity, exile, activism, trauma and healing, whether the Arab Spring failed, and different visions of what the future holds.

    It was nuanced and surprisingly self-critical, but there was no cynicism or defeatism in the room - just the maturity of taking the long term view, as we recalibrate for the future.

    Mentioned in this episode:
    Asma's OFF speech

    Wael Ghonim's OFF speech
