Context

Thousands of protestors on Friday gathered in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, as part of a move by liberal activists to reassert their campaign after a number of apparent political setbacks. Labeled as the “Friday to Save the Revolution,” the protest was staged to oppose to a newly proposed law that could criminalize demonstrations. It was also an attempt to revive the movement that toppled former leader Hosni Mubarak. The protestors called for the prosecution of numerous former colleagues of Mubarak and the ouster of Mubarak allies from top ranks at Egyptian newspapers and TV stations.
