From around March to July 7, Al Jazeera reported little about Egyptian discontent, strikes, street protests and brutal security force crackdowns, including the mass July 1 street protests and a million or more coming out on July 8.

Late in the day Friday, it finally noticed, saying:

"Thousands (not hundreds of thousands) have flooded (Tahri) and other rallying points across the country to demand immediate reforms and swifter prosecution of former (Mubarak) officials...."

Earlier in the day, China Xinhua News Agency's CNC World TV, its new international news channel, said:

A July 8 mass Tahrir Square protest is planned, "aimed at spurring faster reforms and swift punishment of allies of the toppled President....Tens of thousands have already pitched (tents) in the square (for) a demonstration (called) 'The Revolution First.' "

Grievances include lack of change and security force violence, one demonstrator saying:

"I demand justice for our martyrs who were killed during the revolution. Justice is the basis of any sovereignty; it's the foundation of the country."

Another demanded "retaliation and trials of the traitors and murderers who killed out martyrs and wronged us, including those ministers who have just been acquitted."
