Egypt protests for democracy continue


In Cairo’s Tahrir Square thousands of Egyptians with different political views came together to show they want change and are willing to give the military rulers the time they need. In the plaza made famous after the revolution earlier this year, protesters gathered for a rally called ‘Friday of Unity of All Political Forces.”

The message is about working together, according to Mahmoud Ramadan:

“Today we are here to prove that we are one. We must unite to make elections happen first, and then do the necessary things for the constitution. This will lead us to an elected government, which is normal way for any civilised country.”

Protester, Mohamed Ashour was impatient about the pace at which former President is being held accountable:

“I want to tell the General Prosecutor, Abdel Jalil Mahmoud, to make Mubarak’s trial as swift as possible, it comes so late!”

Some protesters are worried that Mubarak, who is in hospital in the red sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, will have his August 3 trial postponed, as a way to avoid public humiliation.
