The Egyptian Revolution that began in January 2011 is in crisis following the killing of more than 500 people and the wounding of more than 3,700 on August 13. Most of the dead and wounded were victims of the U.S.-armed Egyptian military. The military seized power on July 3, after massive protests against the government of Mohammad Morsi, whose economic and social policies had alienated millions of Egyptians.

What do these developments mean for the future of Egypt and the entire region? What is the role and goal of the U.S.? Join us for informative presentations and discussion.
