WASHINGTON — Civic leaders in the Middle East and beyond must seize the "historic moment" for democratic change created by popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday.

In a speech to rights activists, educators and students from more than 20 countries, Clinton said growing protests around the Mideast show the need for them to organize and present demands to governments.
