Protesters are starting to pour into Tahrir Square to demand the dismantling of the regime and the former ruling National Democratic Party.
There have been calls from several youth and pro-change groups to continue the protests in Tahrir Square until all the demands of the January 25 revolution are met.
Today is dubbed the “Cleansing Friday…Protect the Revolution,” day. Protesters are insisting that while President Mubarak stepped down on February 11, the regime itself is not yet "cleansed" and many representatives of the old regime remain in power.
They also insist that most of the demands of the January 25 revolution have not yet been met.
Now protesters say that they will not retreat unless their full demands are met. The demands include the dissolution of the Ahmed Shafiq government, cancellation of the country’s state security intelligence, lifting the state of emergency, creation of a presidential council made up of two civilians and one army officer, and the immediate release of all political prisoners.
There are already six thousand protesters in the square at the moment and more are expected to head there following Friday prayers.
