Arab Spring Generation

Moroccan journalist Ahmed Benchemsi emphasizes the need for a space where Middle Eastern activists can come together and continue building upon the foundation of the Arab Spring. Benchemsi describes how young, tech-savvy activists used social media to spread their pro-democracy message and triggered protests in the region. Since the Arab Spring, however, their influence has decreased; to counter this, Benchemsi partnered with journalists, activists, and artists tofound FreeArabs.com. Through this online community, Benchemsi hopes to reawaken and empower the Arab Spring generation by uniting them in exposing corruption,fighting repression, and recognizing the power of individuals.
