Protesters clash with Central Security Forces in Tahrir Square, Cairo, 19 November 2011

This Video was shot between about 2pm and 4pm on November 19 in Tahrir Square. It shows the early stages of a battle that raged on well into the night, and marked the beginning of the biggest protests so far against the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces which has been ruling the country since Mubarak resigned. Protesters don’t think SCAF is serious about handing over power to an elected civillian government.
