The protesters, who occupied for a week the iconic place in the heart of the capital, have hung a banner in front of a nine-story building on which they reported seven applications on behalf of "young demonstrators in Egypt."
They also require the election of a parliament that will undertake to amend the constitution and prepare for elections in September, judgments against "those responsible for the deaths of the martyrs of the revolution", and "the corrupt and those who stealing the wealth of the country. "
"I will not leave before he left," he told AFP, Mohamed Refaat, 24, documentary filmmaker who has remained night and day on Tahrir Square last week, referring to President Hosni Mubarak, in power for nearly 30 years.
"My mother and my sister were here during the day, they returned home and come back tomorrow. By staying here, we put pressure on him (Mubarak) and the regime ... Tahrir Square is the most important place in Egypt, the country is paralyzed, "he added.
Tens of thousands of demonstrators still gathered Friday on Tahrir Square, the 11th day of a popular protest unprecedented since Arrived to power of President Mubarak.
