ElBaradei ‘ultras’ spread the message with graffiti campaign in Alexandria



A group of Mohamed ElBaradei supporters calling themselves "ultras" have started a campaign in Alexandria supporting him for the presidency and making use of graffiti slogans in poor neighborhoods.

The ultras have sprayed the slogan “The Dream is Approaching” on the walls of the city and placed his picture next to it.

“This is the first time in Egypt that graffiti has been used for campaigning,” said Mohamed Farouk, an ultra supporter of ElBaradei. “We use the white, red and black colors, which are the colors of the Egyptian flag."

Farouk added that the campaign concentrates on the popular areas and poor quarters of the city.
