(p.161) 8 Coptic Protest and Copts in Protest
Copts at the Crossroads

Mariz Tadros

American University in Cairo Press

This chapter is about agency in the form of resistance, subversion, and protest, exploring Coptic mobilization and specific grievances. It draws a distinction between “Coptic protests” (that fight religious discrimination) and “Copts in protest” (that address broader social and political movements not specific to Coptic rights), looking at specific actors, movements, and events—such as the Maspero Youth Movement and the garbage collectors protests. This chapter looks at narratives of dispossession and persecution, and argues that civil and political activism has challenged the mediation of Church leadership.
