Over 90,000 protesters are on the streets of Cairo and major Egyptian cities calling for change including corruption and minimum wage.

Some human and civil rights activist who spoke with Pointblanknews.com described the development which has swept through Tunisia, Yemen and Lebanon. They expressed hope such action is long over due in Nigeria where high level corruption is now a norm.

The protesters who rallied themselves through social media like facebook and tweeter, have taken over most parts of Cairo and Tahir.

They are hoping to seize upon the Tunisian push for change which sent the President and his men scampering into exile.

Pointblanknews.com learnt while international human rights organizations have urged security forces in Egypt to exercise restraint, soldiers who came out to stop the protesters have retreated .
