Friday of Rage... Take two

Hundreds of thousands participated in the second 'Friday of Rage' in Tahrir Square on May 27 - in response to the military junta's systematic injustices, and the interim authorities' failure to bring dictator Mubarak and his regime to justice.

Protesters demanded an immediate end to the referral of civilians to military tribunals, along with the release of all political detainees. Others called for the establishment of a civilian executive council, to replace the (interim) rule of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.

Thousands packed into Tahrir Square to demand swift justice - along with transparency - in the trials of the Mubarak family, and their ousted regime.

Thousands more demanded the purging of the interior ministry (and other ministries/authorities), the dissolution of the fraudulently elected local city councils, and the sacking of Deputy Prime Minister Yehiya el-Gamal, amongst other officials.

Egyptian activists express solidarity with the 'Spanish Revolution' and all other popular democratic revolutions.

There was a massive turnout of revolutionary activists in Tahrir demanding democracy, justice and human rights - despite the declared absence on the Muslim Brotherhood, the Salafis and other reactionary elements.
