Zamelek Ultras' Grafitti

Graffiti of Zamalek militant soccer fan group Ultras White Knights (UWK)
The above grafitti by the Ultras White Knights (UWK), the militant soccer fan group of crowned Cairo club Al Zamalek SC was painted on Sakr Khafaga Street in Cairo's Nasr City.
UWK played a key role in the mass anti-government protests earlier this year that ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak from power. The group has since demonstrated to demand the resignation of the Mubarak-appointed board of the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) as well as against corruption and for removal of Mubarak associates in the Ministry of Interior and the police, the two institutions seen as the enforcers of the former president's repressive regime.
