Rock are piled on a barricade as Egyptians gather to protest the Mubarak government in Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt, Feb. 4, 2011. Today, the 12th day of protests, Egyptians continue to demand that President Hosni Mubarak step down. Although the government continues to stand firm, new appointments to the National Democratic Party were made by the president. The opposition, however, argues that democracy will require the removal of Egypt's dictator along with a Constitution made for one-party rule.
