This chapter examines the dynamics of Copts’ engagement with the uprisings that ousted Mubarak. It starts with the church bombing in Alexandria in January 2011, a precursor for the revolution, and then looks at the high turnout of Copts, as participants and organizers, in the 25 January uprising, in particular in Tahrir Squre. Finally, it discusses the motivations for their participation.
