Tens of thousands of protesters gathered in Cairo's landmark Tahrir Square on Friday for demonstrations aimed at solidifying a national unity among Egyptians across the political spectrum.

While some political groups, such as the Muslim Brotherhood and the April 6 Youth Movement, erected raised platforms among the large crowds, many activists urged the group to take them down, saying the stages distracted from attempts at non-partisanship, the English-language Egyptian Independent website reported.

The demands raised by activists include issuing a law that would prohibit figures from former president Hosni Mubarak's regime from reentering top posts, holding former officials accountable for incidents in the revolution that ousted Mubarak last year and in his decades-long rule, and canceling the longstanding emergency law, according to Al-Ahram.
