Dozens of protesters marched in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Friday afternoon calling for social justice, the handover of executive power to a civilian authority, and “retribution” for the killers of revolutionaries.
The march, which did not affect traffic in the iconic square or in adjacent streets, ended at the nearby Omar Makram Mosque.
Protesters also called on the public to “revive the revolution” on the occasion of its first anniversary on 25 January.
In the canal city of Suez, meanwhile, dozens of activists converged on the centrally-located Al-Arbeen Square to voice the same demands. The demonstration followed the release of local businessman Ibrahim Farag, who along with his sons has been accused of gunning down anti-regime protesters.
At the demonstration, some of the relatives of slain revolutionaries pledged to avenge the death of their loved ones on 25 January.
