Egyptians Demand Reform: The Revolution Continues

on Friday, Jul. 8th

Egyptians are gathering in the thousands at Tahrir Square in Cairo today, and on the North coast of Alexandria, in efforts to replicate the same fervor and public display of outrage that led to the downfall of President Hosni Mubarak in February.

This time around, Egyptians are engaging in more than a protest, and performing a sit-in overnight to demand a fair minimum wage and to expedite political reforms. Military police have had a more hands off approach following violent clashes with protesters in the downtown district last week.

One Egyptian journalist on the ground, John Ehab of Al Masry Al Youm, reports on his Facebook wall that a civil strike will occur in the city of Suez if the police who killed protesters during the revolution are not brought to justice in 24 hours.

According to Al Masry Al Youm, this day is being called the Friday of Persistence. Al Jazeera names it the “March of the Million.”
