Protests in Egypt: Your experiences
The revolution continues
Hundreds of thousands took to the streets of Egypt on the second anniversary of Egypt's revolution. Protesters marched from all over Cairo to Tahrir square, the presidential palace and Maspero which is the headquarters of the state owned TV and Radio. Protesters chanted Bread, freedom, Social justice and Dignity. The very same chants that were used when they protested against Mubarak. Protesters felt that the goals of the revolution were not achieved and that the country's future is in danger so they decided to take a stand and put the country back on the right track. As we reached Tahrir square, there were clashes between protesters and security forces. The clashes intensified and large amount of tear gas and bird shots were used. There were hundreds of Injuries. There were also clashes at Maspero which is near Tahrir square. Field hospitals were set allover the square to provide first aid for the injured. I have no idea what's going to happen in the coming days but it doesn't look good.
