After few hours Egypt will have another round rallies and protests against the constitutional declaration issued by Mohamed Morsi last Thursday. These rallies and protesters are considered as an escalation by political powers.
Now the plan will be as follows :
There will be two rallies from the journalists syndication and bar association downtown Cairo to Tahrir square at 1 PM.
There will be 3 major rallies in Cairo and Giza that will head to Tahrir at 5 PM :
- One from Mostafa Mahmoud mosque in Mohendessin Giza
- One from El Fatah mosque in Giza too "It will be led by Amr Hamzawy"
- One from Shubra roundabout "It will be led by Mohamed ElBaradei and George Ishak
I do not know if the Ultras will participate or not as sometimes their movements are unpredictable like on Friday.
Now these protesters want the following :
- Morsi cancels the constitutional declaration.

- To issue a true law that grants the martyrs' their rights through real investigations and to cancel that emergency exceptional law.
- To reform the constituent assembly
