tahrir square will fill with anger again on friday as egyptian is lists of vent their frustrations towards the country's current military rulers however the same people who are condemning the current leaders for failing the demands of the revolution themselves stand accused of trying to monopolize power the center for three ports many egyptians the ongoing political wrangling is pushing democracy to the sidelines. the protests nation after the revolution toppled president barack gyptian siv continued to use people power as a way to force change the sights and sounds of protestors on cairo's tahrir square have become a familiar one more than a good since president back without the from power with presidential elections just around the corner and the activities here have once again taken center stage but if the last years taught us anything is a revolution alone is not a democracy make this why the upcoming elections appraising so important.
as a discussion group focused on a post arab spring egypt we met a former member of mubarak's regime now a prominent speaker here in egypt the revolution was a must be it's a great action but unfortunately after we have a lot of problems and the challenges we have with the stairs and do we have to reach a vision for. the not everyone will say positive one man asked the panel how they'd feel about the outcome if they'd been one of the young revolutionaries there's an awkward pause but he's not given a clear answer. on forces and the. administration . of. lives in february. eleventh. is a protection food revolution. we will give the people what you want we'll give you
. freedom we'll give you a democracy he told us of the frustration of many people who turned out to tahrir but now feel they've been left represented with a new struggle for power creating many of the regimes old guard what is a democracy is the. source of course is a common complaint. an equally common answer. but the revolutionary me to its homes can last indefinitely i can see a second wave of lucia but we will expect to know waves of. people who are testing against certain actions and this is the mcchrystal everywhere i'm sure. they would realize that they should have a different way more realistic to understand that and that is this region it's not only slogans or shoutings it's the economy the culture and the politics at the end
