59). The examples demonstrate the proactive attempt to connect the case of Khaled Said with existing injustice frames in Egyptian society. Systematic police violence and impunity had thus been a core concern for activists long before Said’s murder. , Aziz, 2007). Critique of the Egyptian police and legal system has been widely associated with the emergency law in effect since the murder of President Anwar Sadat in 1981. The emergency law grants the police and legal authorities extensive powers that clash with basic civil and political rights (FIDH, 2011).

In relation to photography and visual injustice symbols these remarks suggest that photographs may be successful in symbolically diffusing local/national injustice frames transnationally. Yet in that process the local/national injustice frame invariably changes meaning in at least two ways: first, the diffused version will lack the ‘‘thickness’’ of the local/national version; second, it will be interpreted through the political–cultural filters of the receiving audience. Theorizing and analyzing the way visual injustice symbols are transformed in interaction between the local/national and global levels is a particularly fruitful area for future research within political sociology.

The transformation required intervention and appropriation by individuals and activists who creatively and strategically universalized the case and linked it with existing injustice frames in Egyptian society. This chapter analyzes this interplay between photographs, activism, and society in two steps: the first provides a descriptive account of the genesis of the Khaled Said symbol and the agency behind its formation; the second analyzes the process through which Khaled Said and the juxtaposed photographs were infused with injustice meanings.
