Watch this activist deliver the most explosive speech we’ve seen since the Arab Uprisings

Your Middle East was there - at Oslo Freedom Forum - when Iyad el-Baghdadi spoke about the failure of the Arab Spring to produce visible institutional change. But perhaps most importantly, he touched our hearts and minds with a powerful call for a new intellectual movement in the Arab world.

“My friends, this is going to be a talk about how our generation found its voice, how we lost that voice, how we can regain it and why despite all the catastrophes in the Arab world, we remain confident, and we’ll never, ever give up the fight,” el-Baghdadi says in the introduction. Make sure to watch to the very end – it’s a historic speech that will be shared, praised, criticised and debated across the globe.
