ABC: “The police started to disappear off the streets and then we started to see massacres [and] kidnappings for ransom. It really was a terrible, terrible period for Coptic Christians,” Peter Tadros said.

“Everyone was inspired by what we saw in Tahrir Square, and the solidarity between the various facets of Egyptian society,” says Peter Tadros, spokesperson for the Australian Coptic Movement.

“Muslim, Coptic, Nubian, male, female: you name it, we were all there, hand in hand for one cause. But in the aftermath of the revolution, life was no better for Egypt’s Christians.”
