In front of the Moustafa Mahmoud Mosque in the upscale district of Mohandiseen, tens of protesters constructed a small stage, lifted banners and chanted pro-Mubarak slogans.
The banners revealed for the first time the intention to form a party that supports the ousted president; one banner read “Mubarak Peace Party – under construction.”
Other banners and chants were conciliatory – citing Mubarak’s dignity, calling him the hero of war and peace, and telling him to take no notice of a “minority” who degraded him – as well as condemnatory, saying that “Yesterday’s revolutionaries are today’s thugs” and calling for political groups such as the April 6 Youth Movement and Kefaya to be put on trial.
The protesters also spoke against TV presenters Hala Sarhan, Amr El-Leithy and Reem Maged, calling them “hypocrites”.
The demonstration did not block the street, causing only a little traffic disturbance that policemen dealt with.
