EGYPT: Cleaning up the streets after protests [Video]

January 31, 2011 |  3:09 pm


As captured by Daily News Egypt, the footage above shows Egyptian volunteers helping to clean up trash after recent protests. Volunteers have also provided free medical service and food to some protesters.

One volunteer says: "I'll tell you something, these six days will impact Egypt for the next 50 years. Any ruler will think a hundred times before making a decision because he will always remember what happened on Jan. 25, 2011."

A one-million man rally is planned for Cairo on Tuesday. Al Jazeera has also reported that there may be a march on the presidential palace.
