Vice President Omar Suleiman's announcement of constitutional and electoral reforms doesn't appear to be assuaging the hundreds of thousands of Egyptians packing Tahrir Square today in what reporters on the scene are calling the biggest demonstration since the protests began Jan. 25.
An Al Jazeera correspondent reported that "the vice president came out about 10:30 this morning and said the president had signed a decree allowing for constitutional amendments. ... But I don’t think it worked well. I don’t think anyone here has bothered listening to that yet. The call here is for an end to the regime of the past 30 years and to make sure they will not return once it’s over."
There are calls for another million man march on Friday; they do not want those that died in the first week to be forgotten. They already have huge posters of those killed in those clashes — and they are planning some kind of memorial service to mark those who have fallen.
They want to keep Tahrir Square as a reminder of the very serious actions that have happened here, and discourage people from just coming down to sightsee and just walk around for a few hours.
