About 500 people gathered in the Qatari capital on Tuesday in support of the Egyptian uprising
2 Feb 2011
"Tuesday is the million protest, Friday is the day you leave," this poster says.
Demonstrators told Al Jazeera that security at the Egyptian embassy had stopped them from holding the rally outside the building so instead they gathered at an open slot nearby
People read out a poem in Arabic, saying "Freedom, freedom, where are you? Mubarak is between you and us."
Demonstrations are a rare scene in Qatar. The crowds chanted "Get lost, get lost" and "God is great."
"I(***)m here because I want to support my friends, my nation, my people, and to invite the world to see how much we hate Mubarak. He kills our dreams. Many people leave Egypt to find a future," Ashraf Rashad said.
"Write that this is his last day. I(***)m 19 and I didn(***)t see any other president than him. Anyone will be better. Write in big letters (***)GAME OVER MUBARAK!(***)", Rehab Ahmed, to the right, said.
"Get lost, get lost, enough lying, enough killing, enough emergency law," a poster read.
"When Mubarak leaves, I want to go back. I want my children to live in Egypt. With Mubarak I am sometimes ashamed of being Egyptian but now, I am proud," said Dalia Tawfiq.
Protesters distributed flyers saying "We(***)re no longer scared. We(***)re sick and tired of the oppressed voice. We don(***)t want you Mubarak!"
"I love Egypt and I wish Mubarak will go. He will, no doubt," said Alaa Majdi al-Shall, to the left, holding the word "freedom" in Arabic.
"It(***)s not an Egyptian revolution. It(***)s an Arab revolution, a Muslim revolution. It started in Tunisia and it(***)s not going to stop in Egypt," Mariam Yasser Nofal, to the right, said.
"We want Mubarak to go. Thirty years is more than enough. We need freedom. We support our brothers and sisters in Egypt and we will continue. He will go," Ahmed Abdurazek, to the right, said.
