  • 1. TUNISIA The long road to democracy EGYPT : Friday, february 4, 2011 « Departure Day »
  • 2. EGYPT PROTEST : Friday, february 4, 2011 « Departure Day » Hundreds of thousands of protesters have gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square in what has been a largely peaceful protest, calling for Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, to stand down. The square, which has been the focal point of protests in Egypt, saw demonstrators observe what they have termed a "Day of Departure" for the man who has been the country's leader for the last 30 years. As the country entered its eleventh day of unrest, mass demonstrations commenced after Friday prayers. Protests were also seen in the cities of Alexandria, Mahalla and Giza. Protests continued into the night, in defiance of a curfew that has not been observed since it was first enforced last week. The newly relaxed curfew now runs from 7pm to 6am local time. One protester in Cairo told Al Jazeera that demonstrators would continue protesting until Mubarak steps down. "It's either death, or freedom," he said. Ahmed Shafiq, Egypt's new prime minister, however, said on Friday that Mubarak would not be handing over powers to Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, before the September elections. In statements carried by the official MENA news agency, Shafiq "ruled out" an early exit for Mubarak. "We need President Mubarak to stay for legislative reasons," he said. Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, Egypt's defence minister, visited Tahrir Square earlier on Friday, making him the first member of the government to do so. He talked with the protesters and military commanders. Speaking on Friday in Washington, Barack Obama, the US president, said it was "clear that there must be a transition process that begins now ... and leads to free and fair elections". Obama said that a "successful and orderly transition must be meaningful and ... must address the legitimate greivances of those who seek a better future". He said that in this "time of tumult and transformation", the US would remain a "strong friend and partner" to the Egyptian people.  Source : aljazeera

  • 68. Alexandria Tens of thousands of people have staged protests against Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, in Alexandria, on what activists have dubbed his "Day of Departure". An Al Jazeera producer said the crowds had gathered on Friday at the Qaed Ibrahim mosque in the centre of Egypt's second city, which sits on the Mediterranean coast. "Hundreds of thousands of people, possibly a million have gathered here," he said. "The atmosphere is very joyous and determined. "There was an incident of an undercover security officer who tried to start a fight, he was apprehended but not hurt, however, he said he was paid to come and start trouble." The protesters, a majority of them from the opposition Muslim Brotherhood movement, shouted "Down with Mubarak! Down with the regime!" Members of other opposition groups were also present, including activists from the Kefaya (Enough) and 6th April movements and supporters of Egyptian Nobel Peace prize winner and leading dissident Mohamed ElBaradei. Mass protests Sobhi Saleh, a spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, said another group of about 25,000 protesters had massed in Alexandria's Raml neighbourhood, and planned to converge with the main gathering before marching to the city's Sidi Gaber square.
