    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     arasquare shot this video on March 27 of the third day of an ongoing sit-in near the Egyptian parliament building in Cairo. 'This sit-in is planned to put more pressure on the parliament to achieve the Ultras' demands, which include justice for the Ultras [football club] members who were murdered in Port Said stadium massacre. Until now, it's an open-ended sit-in until further announcements by the Ultras group,' he said. He notes that the demonstrators in the video are chanting 'one of the revolutionary songs composed by Ultras Ahlawy. Part of it says "We said it before to the tyrant: Freedom must come."'
