Artists Ammar Abu Bakr, Hanaa El Deighem and fine arts professor, Alaa Awad are protesting the martyrs of the Egypt revolution including the 71 people that were killed in the football stadium riots by painting portraits and murals on Mohamed Mahmoud Street and on the walls of the American University in Cairo.
