“Egypt’s second revolution of anger” Facebook group, which spearheded calls for major rallies around the country back in May, has renewed calls for Egyptians to demonstrate on 9 September in Tahrir Square.

The demonstrations will demand  an end to military trials of civilians and a speedy return to civilian rule.

According to rights activists, the ruling military council (SCAF) has tried 12,000 civilians in military courts since it came to power last February.

The Facebook group also accused Prime Minister Sharaf of not doing enough to bring about radical changes since the January 25 revolution and called on him to resign.
