A member of the April 6 Youth Movement, Mahfouz posted several YouTube videos, including one on January 18 that has been credited by many with having helped spark the protests in Egypt that began on January 25; for example, "Equal Rights Takes to the Barricades" by Mona El-Naggar in the New York Times.
