Tahrir Square, Part 2: Egyptians not happy with the harsh anti-people policies of the Post-Mubarak ilitary junta

From a report about the protests against the harsh measures of the Military Junta headed by Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, as well as Prime Minister Essam Sharaf, who are using military courts to punish demonstrators:

In recent weeks, the new regime has increasingly demonstrated that it is just as hostile to the Egyptian people’s democratic and social rights as was the ex-dictator, Hosni Mubarak, throughout his 30-year rule. Under Tantawi’s leadership, the military on March 23 banned all strikes and protests that interfere with the economy or public life, imposing draconian punishment for those who defy the law. The emergency laws—in force in Egypt since 1967 except for a short period prior to the assassination of Anwar Sadat—will remain in place.
