To all Egyptians hoping to spare this nation strife
We are a group of Egypt’s youth who had rejected the bitter reality that we had been experiencing under the ruling party’s regime, with all its symbols and policies, which have led the country to total collapse, oppression and frustration.
We do not belong to any existing political or religious currents and did not have prior agendas, but believed that certain reforms need to be made.
We were among those who went out and demonstrated in the days of honor 25 and 28 January  and the March of Millions on 1 February in Tahrir Square. We agree with the people on the necessity of change and a peaceful transfer of power.
We sense the profound need for unifying our front in order to preserve our rights and the gains we have secured in the last 10 days. We also sense the lack of clarity on how the change we seek could come about and the need on working to develop consensus on the concrete steps for a transfer of power that would be satisfactory to the demonstrators and wide sectors of Egyptian society for moving forward. This need is ever more pressing due to the trying days of anxiety and absence of security the country has experienced due to the treason the Egyptian people have been subjected to and whose intentional organizers must be brought to justice.
This statement is based on the pulse of Tahrir and the demands circulated there reflecting the visions of these reformers and converge on the items articulated by Dr. Ahmed Zeweil and other reformers and that they point clearly to the desire for a “civil” state and rule of law, accountability, separation of powers, transparent elections and that the steps towards this are best articulated by Dr. Ahmed Zeweil’s letter to the Egyptian people.
Therefore we call for the following:
• Guarantees for achieving the peaceful transfer of power in the coming period.
• Agreement on the clear vision and concrete demands articulated in Dr. Ahmed Zuweil’s letter and outlining practically applicable steps such as:
I. The Constitution: A constitutional assembly of wise men should be assembled to draft a new constitution, based on liberty, human rights, and the orderly transfer of power.
II. The independence of the courts must be guaranteed.
III. Free and fair elections must be conducted for the upper and lower houses of parliament and for the presidency, overseen by the independent judiciary.
IV. Government: A new transitional government of national unity must be appointed. The military must intervene to keep order and to protect the nation in this transitional period.
• Delegating the following names to speak on our behalf and continue to consult with groups of demonstrators as a nucleus of a negotiation committee, enter into dialogue with Mr. Omar Suleiman as a representative of the existing regime, and take all necessary measures and decisions to deliver the country from the current crisis and put forward a vision for the future.
These are names that we believe: enjoy very broad based support based on our consultation with other youth and protestors; present balanced visions; and represent different political currents, without any one dominating the others.
We ask those who agree with us to sign this statement.
