On Friday and Saturday crowds gathered in Washington DC to support Egypt's pro democracy demonstrations.



Crowds gathered outside of the White House on Friday and Saturday and called upon the US government to cease its support Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.







Several groups planned rallies for Saturday. One group of protesters marched from the Egyptian Embassy to the the White House

The crowd was buoyant as the second group of protesters arrived.

Activists shouted slogans in both Arabic and English calling for Mubarak to step down.
The protesters in Washington DC have called for the government to take a less equivocal stand on the protests in Egypt. On Sunday President Obama expressed his support for “an orderly transition to a government that is responsive to the aspirations of the Egyptian people.”
