Masmou3 (Muslim Brotherhood.


Masmou3 was founded in August 2013 in the aftermath of the military coup against President Morsi, following a violent crackdown by security forces on sit-ins by supporters of the deposed president, in which hundreds of protesters were killed,[1] and the imposition of a night time curfew by the military-backed government.

On 17 August, the Masmou3 campaign was started on Twitter.[2] In the first English tweet, the activists posted: "If you reject religious fascism & the Egyptian State's route to civil war, every night at 9PM open your window & make some noise #masmou3".[3]

On 18 August, they posted: "If you survived #Sisi's strings of sedating populist slogans, don't forget to give him a nice round of bang-bangs at 9PM. #masmou3"[4] and "@masmou3 has 700 followers since yesterday only. 700 people who say no to #MB fascism and no to #Sisi fascism. That's very good news."[5] As of 5 September 2013, the Twitter account has attracted more than 1,500 followers, and the Facebook page has attracted more than 21,000 followers.

On 22 August, American television news channel CNN showed a report about the movement, including an interview with activist Aalam Wassef.[6]

On 26 August, the movement launched its official Facebook page, "so that our voice remains heard against the attempts of the state and the Brotherhood to kill our revolution, and so that our voice remains heard against their violence and their attempts to silence us",[7] and on 27 August, it published a campaign song and video (with English subtitles) on YouTube.[8]
