The martyrs march
On the second of December 2011 hundreds of Egyptian activists marched from Mostafa Mahmoud mosque to Tahrir square in a symbolic funeral for those who were killed in Mohamed Mahmoud battle that stayed for more than 100 hours – between anti-SCAF protesters and Central Security Forces – a week earlier where more than 40 were killed, thousands injured and many lost their eyes. Each of the symbolic coffins was covered with the Egyptian flag along with a stencil of the martyr. Also some activists put an eye patch or an anti-SCAF sticker on their eyes in solidarity with those who lost their eyes during the battle.
