Egypt set for 'Day of Departure' - Today, Friday, Feb. 4


www.bbc.co.uk

Protesters in the Egyptian capital Cairo are preparing to stage a "Day of Departure" for President Hosni Mubarak.

Organisers are calling for tens of thousands of people to gather in Tahrir Square, where days of unrest have left at least 300 people dead.

Mr Mubarak is coming under increasing international pressure to resign, with the US now calling for an immediate transition of power.

But he has so far refused to go, saying doing so would leave Egypt in chaos.

Today there will be a massive march on the presidential palace by protesters demanding that Mubarak resign immediately, and 'depart' his office.

Supposedly this was behind the recent beatings of journalistic teams, as it was meant as a warning to stay away today. Pro-Mubarak supporters don't want coverage of any violence that might shed them in a bad light.

It's now about 0845 in Cairo. The people are being told to gather in the capital after Friday prayers.

This probably will be the largest demonstration yet. For so long as the protestors are prepared to stay in Tahrir Square indefinately I can see Mubarak resigning in days or weeks to come, not months, however I don't see him going to live in exile.

Egypt has the potential to be the greatest nation in the Middle east as it once was...if they play their cards rights and don't allow too much external interference especially from USA, Israel or Russia & Iran.

I hope the Egyptians don't go down the road and make the same mistakes of the Western world or become extremists like Iran. If they look to the golden years of Islam in Spain; that should be a good building block.

Hey I know there are A LOT of tweets to read and follow, but I thought this was pretty interesting. Lots of people's tweets to read. Tweets from Egypt

I can't seem to step away from my computer! The situation over there is so tense! Every time I turn around, another country is rising against their government. I wish the people of Egypt the best today. From what I'm hearing/seeing... they're in for something rough.

Mubarak has already made it clear that he wants to live out his days in Egypt. I think that would be acceptable if he left office immediately. But he has made almost the impossible condition of being afraid that the Muslim Brotherhood taking over if he left today.

I don't think that is going to happen. The best form of Govt for Egypt at this point in time is a provencial Govt made up of both Muslim (Orthodox & secular), Coptic and other minority groups. The presidency could be more symbolic (not having the same powers as a PM). I think this is what the Egyptians really want at this stage.
