Tahrir today

Another day of protest in Cairo, with a small pro-reform group (including several MPS) gathering in Tahrir Square to protest (I think) the emergency laws. The mood seemed very different from yesterday; the demonstrators were charged by police and there is footage of them being beaten and shoved. A lot less coverage of it today but here again are some videos and photos:

raw footage of the clashes with the police

and some more videos from 3arabawy

and apparently they’re now going to raise the minimum wage a bit
