Return to Tahrir: Second Day of Rage

Friday was the second day of rage in Midan Al-Tahrir or Liberation Square. The army, fearing violence, protested the protest by staying out. Police were mostly absent as well. Despite fears, the protest remained peaceful and people governed themselves accordingly. Here are some images from the event.

To enter Liberation Square, we first had to show our IDs to pass through this volunteer security line.

Fishing for freedom.

A number of improptu debates formed within the Square. Men were debating men; men with women; young and old; most were heated, but civil. One or two turned into shouting.

"Mubarak was president for 30 years. What did the people have to eat during this time? Nothing but chicken feet!"

Martyrs of the revolution are honored on a poster.

A painted Egyptian flag was quite popular for the protest.

How did they get up there?
