Protest at Cairo's State Television building, March 25, 2011

I went to Cairo’s Tahrir Square yesterday, Friday, March 25, to see what the weekly Friday afternoon protest was like.  It was a smaller crowd than usual when I got there in the late afternoon.  I saw one group of protesters with flags chanting and marching out of the Square.  I heard they went to the State Television Network building to a rally there.  I went there and found one or two thousand protesters.  

Protesters were demanding a change in the leadership of State Television since they believe State Television has been bias before and during the revolution and continues to be so post-Mubarak.  Other protesters were objecting to a proposed law that is currently being considered by the military that would criminalize protesting.

Below are some photos and a video I took at the protest.  I’m working on uploading other videos of interviews I did while I was at the protest and will post them once I'm able to upload them.

Here’s a link to an article discussing three different protests in Cairo yesterday.
