PRLog - May 8, 2011 - CAIRO, EGYPT (MWA-Net) - The Liberal Revolutionaries Movement, The Independent Alliance of The Revolution Youth and The Liberal Revolutionaries demonstrated in Tahrir Square after Friday prayers in a bid to uphold demands of the 25 Jan. Revolution.  

Protesters called on the Egyptian Military Council to end Egypt's emergency law and to abolish political imprisonment. They also called for release of political prisoners, including Nabeel Mohamed al-Maghraby, 70, imprisoned more than 30-years, activists Wael Abou El-Liel and Tariq Soliman and blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad, sentenced in April to three years in prison without the presence of his lawyers.

Following Friday's events more than 2,000 Egyptian political activists and scholars gathered Saturday for a meeting aimed at 'protecting the revolution'.

The meeting, organized by activist Mamduh Hamza, was slated to produce an elected 60-member council to represent their collective voice in Egypt's transition to democracy.

On May 7 Almasry Alyoum also reported the launch of an activist initiated campaign titled, "Let's Write Our Constitution". The campaign, led by activists, jurists and law professors, aims to enable a broader segment of Egyptian society to participate in drafting the country's new constitution.

The "Let's Write Our Constitution" initiative will also be supported by a soon-to-be-launched website designed to host discussions over a three month period. Discussion ideas and comments will be incorporated into a draft Constitution that will be presented to the public for signatures and the approval of political parties and groups.
