While the main demand of the protestors, the ouster of Mubarak, has occurred, they are understandably still not satisfied.
Via the BBC: Egypt crisis: Protests switch to demands on pay
Fresh protests and strikes have flared in Egypt as demonstrators demand better pay and conditions from the country’s new military rulers.
Bank, transport and tourism workers all demonstrated in Cairo after 18 days of protests succeeded in removing President Hosni Mubarak.
In a TV statement, the military urged all Egyptians to go back to work.
Earlier, Cairo’s Tahrir Square was cleared of protesters but hundreds soon returned, joined by disgruntled police.
Our correspondent in Cairo says there appears to be a whole series of mini-revolutions going on in the wake of the removal of Mr Mubarak.
It is interesting that military tried to clear the square, as it indicates that they would like to move past the protest phase. It is likewise interesting that the protests continued anyway.
It will make for an intriguing dynamic in the weeks to come.
