Remembering the poet A7med Fu2aad Nagm


New Member
Ahmad Fuaad Negm (أحمد فؤاد نجم ) was a progressive Egyptian poet who died this month six years ago, and was jailed for 18 years during the late 20th century for criticizing the regimes of Nasser, Sadat and Mubarak. His poetry was oft recited by the people of Egypt during their 2011 revolution, owing to his messages of resistance to tyranny. He was often associated with the like-minded folk singer Shei5 7Imam; Al Shei5 Mu7ammad 3Isa (الشيخ إمام؛ الشيخ محمد عيسى ), who passed away in the mid 1990s.
