The Revolution Youth Coalition, in coordination with several political parties and movements, has decided that sit-ins in Tahrir and elsewhere around the country are to continue until four basic demands are met. These are: 1) Swift public trials for those responsible for the killing of protesters during the revolution; 2) Prime Minister Essam Sharaf to be granted the full prerogatives of his office and real powers by which to govern the country; 3) the sacking of the interior minister and the appointment of a civilian in his place; 4) Abolishing the referral of civilians to military trials.

A further fifth demand is under discussion, and that is to suspend all police officers implicated in violence against protesters and torture cases pending full investigation and trial.
