Batel

The following graphics would better exist in the public domain. I volunteered to do a single poster after [Nora|http://nourayounis.com] asked, but it turned out to be several posters. They made an excellent impact [today at the protest|http://mostafa.foolab.org/node/149]. They were all created with [Inkscape|http://www.inkscape.org] graphics software which is a free/open source application that works on both windows and GNU/Linux. It is a very easy to use graphics application.

I attached the original [SVG|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalable_Vector_Graphics] so you can scale, print or modify. You might need some fonts from [Arabeyes|http://arabeyes.org]

__Update 2005-12-04:__ Some quotes about this poster:

``A new poster showing the president's face with the word batel in flowing calligraphy across it has become overnight as iconic as the black on yellow Kefaya logo.''
--[Ahdaf Soueif|http://books.guardian.co.uk/departments/generalfiction/story/0,,1656571,00.html]

``The creativity of newly politicised young people is astonishing, like this brilliant Mostafa Hussein creation that takes a leaf from old Egyptian film posters.'' --[Baheyya|http://baheyya.blogspot.com/2005/09/colour-of-protest.html]

I am not sure if anyone noticed but I tried to copy the style of hand painted Egyptian film posters.
