Egyptian Vigilante Group Resorts to Tagging their Targets… Literally

By - Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

The members of the group “Be a Man” patroled during the recent Eid al-Adha festival celebrations, armed with cans of black and white spray paint, attacking, pinning down, and scarlet-lettering the shit out of grabbers and gropers with the words “I Am a Harasser.” Mostly men themselves, the activists wore matching fluoro jackets with “Harassment Prevention” scrawled across their backs in Arabic. {image-1} “The Egyptian media have tried to paint us a violent group, but we’re not. What we did during Eid was an exception—desperate times called for desperate measures. So yeah, a lot of people aren’t happy about the way we go about what we do, but it’s simply the best way of doing it. Arresting the harasser and releasing him after two days isn’t going to do anything for anyone.“ -Muhammad Taimoor, leader and founder of the campaign.
