In Photos: Egyptians Protest In Tahrir Square

by | 21st, November 2011

IF the first revolution does not succeed, try again. In Egypt there is more trouble. At least 20 people have died in fights with the military rulers’ police force. President Mubarak was deposed in February but the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (Scaf) are in charge. The fight for freedom goes on.

Scaf have put down the bones of a new constitution. Only, no part of it allows for civilians to review the military and its funding. Scaf set no date for presidential elections. If this is freedom…

The state says it is nto suing live ammo. But in The Independent, Dr Ahmed Atif claims to have seen the bodies of four men killed by live rounds. Scaf says the police have only rubber bullets. They thank their police for showing “self-restraint in dealing with the events“.

Send of the bread rolls – the people need new helmets!

Firing tear gas and rubber bullets, Egyptian riot police on Sunday clashed for a second day with thousands of rock-throwing protesters demanding that the ruling military quickly announce a date to hand over power to an elected government. The police battled an estimated 5,000 protesters in and around central Cairo's Tahrir Square, birthplace of the 18-day uprising that toppled authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak in February.
