Ultras of Egypt

When protest erupts in the streets of Egypt in 2011 there is one group that stands out: the Ultras. These Ultras were formed to fanatically support local football clubs, but became the fighting division of the civil protest against President Mubarak. The Ultras know how to fight the much hated police and how to resist with force. Marching the streets, the Ultras become the heroes of the revolution, but there is a high price to pay when a new military regime takes over.
