Egyptians to march on Liberation Square

Millions of Egyptians are planning to continue their protests by flooding Cairo's Liberation square for a demonstration dubbed as 'cleansing Friday.'

Protesters have planned the rally for this Friday, as they say their demands have not been met, The Associated Press reported.

They want the military council to hand over power to a civilian government, and Prime Minister Ahmad Shafiq's cabinet to resign.

"We will march in protest to demand the resignation of Shafiq's government and abolishing emergency law and the trial of Mubarak and his family," Mohamed Fahmy of the People's National Movement for Change said.

They are also calling for the immediate release of all political prisoners.

Fear is spreading that Vice President Omar Suleiman -- who was the right-hand-man of toppled President Hosni Mubarak -- is making the post-revolution decisions for the government. Reports indicate that he is dictating decisions to the military council.

After holding talks last week, activists accused Suleiman of being divisive and have refused to hold further negotiations. The Muslim Brotherhood has also cut contacts.

Suleiman disappeared from the public eye after former President Hosni Mubarak was ousted last month. He was Egypt's intelligence chief for two decades before being appointed vice-president, maintaining a close relationship with the US and Israel all the while.


P.S. The Egyptian people apparently aren't getting it or they're not buying the Ugly Truth that their protesting is all part of a zionist plot and they're all being duped. Don't you guys get it? The Ugly Truth is your protesting is all for nothing! The Ugly Truth is revolutions just don't happen this way. The Ugly Truth is tyrants aren't just going to give up their power by your protesting. The Ugly Truth is you're going to get hurt for nothing.

The truth is that the courage and tenacity of the Egyptian is to be celebrated, and it should be supported by people of good will everywhere... now!... rather than vaingloriously pooh poohing them as manipulated dopes... as if they were American Republican tea partiers.

P.P.S. Oh yes, it is true that Jesus honored peoples' faith by multiplying two fishes and five loaves of bread to feed thousands, but in this case, the Ugly Truth is that these protests are all in vain. Sorry, that's the Ugly Truth of it. I'm afraid the Ugly Truth is that God is unlikely to move in behalf of these duped, hapless protestors.
