Human rights laywer Nasrin Sotoudeh is now in her second month of a hunger strike.

Egyptians are revolting after democratically-elected leader Mohammad Morsi awarded himself near-dictatorial powers. Almost two years after the ousting of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt remains mired in political struggles between remnants of Hosni Mubarak’s regime, the Muslim Brotherhood and the rest of Egyptian political opinion. VOMENA talks with Barnard College’s assistant professor of political science Mona El Ghobashy and  Jadaliyya co-editor Hesham Sallam about Morsi’s latest move and the balance of power between competing political movements in Egypt. Also, International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran director Hadi Ghaemi, weighs in about the case of imprisoned human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh, who has been on a hunger strike since Oct. 17.
