Egypt: huge milestone

Congratulations, people of Egypt!

I look forward to this banner being re-hung in Tahrir Square with the first demand checked off, because the next several are just as crucial.

1. Resignation of the president
2. End the State of Emergency
3. Dissolution of the People’s Assembly and Shura Council
4. Formation of a national transitional government
5. An elected Parliament that will amend the Constitution to allow for presidential elections
6. Immediate prosecution for those responsible of the deaths of the revolution’s martyrs
7. Immediate prosecution of the corrupters and those who robbed the country of its wealth.

Youths of Egypt

The banner first appeared on February 4. Photo by Hossam el-Hamalawy (3arabawy)
