Egyptian, Iraqi pro-democracy fights continue

This video, recorded in Egypt, says about itself:

29 June 2011

There’s been fresh unrest in Cairo where at least 50 protesters have been injured in clashes with police. Dozens were also injured on Tuesday as hundreds of protesters took first to the Interior Ministry, and then shifted to Tahrir square, the epicentre of the revolution in February. Protesters are angry about the slow process of prosecuting security officers, accused of causing the deaths of more than 800 people, during the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

The US-backed military government in Egypt has carried out a bloody crackdown of thousands of protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Over one thousand have been injured, with dozens still hospitalized: here.

Cairo does not have the only Tahrir square in the Middle East where an anti-democratic pro-Washington government violently attacks pro-democracy demonstrators. See this video.
