Egyptian activists are calling for a mass rally to save the revolution that toppled former dictator Hosni Mubarak and his associates from power.

On a Facebook page called, "The 2nd Revolution of Anger," the activists are urging all Egyptians to take to the streets on July 8.

They say too much attention is being paid to whether elections or a constitution should come first. This comes at the expense of the basic principles of the Revolution such as the "protection of rights and freedoms."

"To all rival political forces debating which should come first, constitution or elections, save your revolution first, save Egypt first. Our revolution is collapsing," the activists said on their Facebook page.

Following Mubarak's downfall, a military council took over in Egypt. Many Egyptians believe it is trying to derail the uprising.

Egyptian protesters say Mubarak and his associates must be tried for killing around 800 protesters during the country's popular uprising which led to his ouster on February 11.

Activists also demand the release of political prisoners and the disbandment of the military court.

Egyptians are still skeptical about a rapid transition towards democracy and civilian rule and maintain that demonstrations will continue until all their demands are met.
