Tahrir sends message to Egypt's ruling military council and the majority Islamic party

Tahrir sends message to Egypt's ruling military council and the majority Islamic party | Egy Tourism | Scoop.it

"The thousands of Egyptians marching to Tahrir on "Friday of Dignity" had one clear demand: an immediate handover of power from the ruling military junta to a civilian, transitional government. The demonstrations that flooded to the iconic square from several parts of Cairo also made a stubborn statement that the revolution still continues.

"This is a revolution, not a celebration" they chanted on the year anniversary of Egypt's revolution. "Do not be scared, say it out loud: the [military] council has to go," was another slogan dominating the square and the several rallies that toured Cairo on Friday.

The martyrs were also much remembered, as made obvious by the thousands wearing masks of the faces of those killed since last year’s 25 January. Protesters - still angry that no one has yet been held accountable for the hundreds killed during Egypt’s revolution - also chanted, demanding retribution." (Salma Shukrallah)
