Immediately after Hosni Mubarak's resignation as President, the Egyptian people went down to the streets again and started cleaning the streets after the popular uprising. Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt. 12/02/2011

On Feb 12th, the day after Mubarak's resignation, the Egyptians filled Tahrir (liberation) Square again. This time to clean up their own mess and to celebrate. Everyone was trying to help to clean up the mess that was made during the protests, and they succeeded. Tahrir (Liberation) Square now is better than before, cleaner than ever. The tasks varied from collecting the garbage to painting the pavements and walls. Moreover, Egyptians didn't stop when they were done with the square. They actually moved to nearby famous squares, bridges and even branched side-roads.
