Yasser Shams Aldden (Template:Lang-ar) is an Egyptian journalist[1][2][3]and political activist.[4][5] known for his criticism of the Mubarak and Abdel Fattah el-Sisi regimes, his activity during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 and leading the April 6 Youth Movement Democratic Front against the SCAF and military rule.


Aldden was born to a middle-class family on 30 January 1978 in Cairo. He holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from Ain Shams University.

Political activism

Blogging was one of the means used to bring down the Mubarak regime.[6] Egypt was listed by the Committee to Protect Journalists as one of the ten worst countries to be a blogger in 2009.[7] Aldden was opposed to the Mubarak regime using a blog, established in 2006. He was a protester with the Egyptian opposition movement Kefaya [8] in April 6th 2008. He joined the April 6 movement front in Alexandria in 2010. He was active during the 2011 Egyptian revolution and its aftermath.

In summer 2011 after differences arose in the April 6 Youth Movement,[9] leaders of the movement announced they would transform it into a NGO[10] or a foundation on its anniversary. On August 8 2011 Aldden split with a group of 6 April Youth Movement members in Alexandria and established the April 6 Youth Movement Democratic Front, leaving Ahmed Maher's group[11]Template:Failed verification[12]Template:Failed verification

In July 2013, a military coup[13] removed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi from office. Despite political and ideological disputes between Aldden and the Muslim Brotherhood, he rejected the coup and consequently in 2013 he traveled out of Egypt. He now states that he can't return to the country, and has been placed on airport watchlists.[14]Template:Failed verification
