The Revolutionary Youth Coalition (RYC) has issued three demands to be articulated at Friday’s scheduled mass demonstration in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, to be dubbed the “Friday of Justice for the Martyrs.”

Activists are calling for the million-man protest in response to the ongoing crackdown on protesters – now in its fifth day – by security forces.

According to the RYC's official Facebook page, Friday’s demands will be as follows:

- The speedy prosecution of security officers responsible for the death of protesters, regardless of their respective rank and position;

-The appointment of a government of “national salvation” to manage the country until presidential elections are held;

-The radical reformation of the Egyptian Ministry of Interior, including the dismantling of the infamous Central Security Forces division.
