New revolutionary group to march on Ministry of Defense

A new revolutionary group calling itself the Second Egyptian Revolution of Anger is planning a march on Thursday afternoon to demand the achievement of various revolutionary goals. The march will start at Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo and move on to the cabinet nearby, then continue on to the Ministry of Defense in Kobri al-Qobba, where protesters will deliver their demands on paper before returning to Tahrir.

Group leaders say that if their demands are not met, they will call for the formation of a civil presidential council to fulfill their demands.

The group is demanding that a committee of jurists draft a new constitution before the parliamentary elections, the Interior Ministry be purged of corrupt members and restructured, the judiciary and media also purged, and the attorney general replaced.

They called for the immediate release of youth detained since the outbreak of the 25 January revolution, no more military tribunals for civilians and the abolition of the law preventing sit-ins and demonstrations.

The group has several demands of an economic nature, including fixed minimum and maximum wage rates and the monitoring of market prices.
