The Uprising

The demonstrations were sparked Jan. 25 by a smaller protest in front of the Supreme Court building. Protesters called for Mubarak, who has been in power for 30 years, to step down. Since last week, protests in capital city Cairo grew each day by the thousands, and often resulted in confrontations with the police. Public discontent had been growing over the past several months, as shown by smaller protests over food prices, poverty, police brutality and alleged government corruption.
