Demanding Change in Egypt: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Cairo Friday demanding change. It was mostly jubilant, but there was also tension. There's still a crowd in Liberation Square at this hour. Anderson reports live from the capital city tonight with the latest developments.

    Nice Reporter's Notebook. I haven't seen one of those for awhile.

    Professor Ajami is always so honest and knowledgeable about what is happening. I always appreciate his appearances.

    Best thing about Egypt... it is a lesson about the power of Internet and freedom of press... and its influence on people.
    Democracy is the inevitable preferred choice of all. So, all dictators out there.. take notice! Transition out, or people will do it for you.

    Hi Anderson,

    How old on average are the members of the Egyptian military? If they're reasonably young, I suspect that their sentiments may be more closely aligned with those of the pro-revolution protesters as opposed to those of the regime...

    Stay safe!
