Angry Protesters in Tahrir Square: Morsi Will Fall Tonight

Thousands of protesters are converging on Tahrir Square from points around Cairo to rally against President Mohamed Morsi’s constitutional declaration. One protester has died after inhaling teargas, Egypt Independent reports.

Dozens of parties and civil society groups called for the protests after Morsi’s declaration last Thursday which gave him tyrannical powers and declared the Constituent Assembly and the upper house, the Shura Council immune from judicial review.

A march that began in the Shubra neighborhood north of Cairo, led by former presidential candidate Khaled Ali, arrived in the square late Tuesday afternoon.

The old chants of the revolution were back in loud roars, as protesters were shouting, “The people want to bring down the regime,” as well as newer slogans such as, “Bread, freedom, down with Constituent Assembly.”

Several political parties also participated in the Shubra march, including the Free Egyptians party, the Social Democratic Party, the Adl Party, the Socialist Popular Alliance Party, and the Revolutionary Socialists Movement.

As he watched the march pass, one passer-by said, “It’s over. Tahrir is already full; Morsi will fall tonight.”

Protesters stressed that their large numbers fly in the face of the Brotherhood’s claim that they represent the majority, chanting, “They said we’re a minority, we showed them a million-man march.”

Coalition coordinator Ehab Moussa said, “Morsi’s latest decisions harm the tourism sector and investments in Egypt. Investors will run away after their trust in the Egyptian judiciary is shaken.”

University students and retired officers were also present in the square, and a Wafd Party march led by party head Al-Sayed al-Badawy had set off from its headquarters towards Tahrir.

“The constitutional declaration is an assault on statehood and the rule of law,” said Mohamed Shaaban, a lawyer. “The president is seeking seize all powers, but the people will not remain silent until he moves back.”

Meanwhile, dozens of Muslim Brotherhood students distributed statements at Ain Shams University reading, “The main goal of the recent constitutional declaration is Egyptians’ interests, in order to hold retrials of protesters’ killers and allocate pensions to the injured and martyrs, as part of their rights.”

    Look closely: The silence from obama and hillary, as well as the UN, shows the dramatic shift in global alliances. The US, once the vaunted leader if freedom and liberty has now openly allied itself with jihadists and murderers like the Muslim Brotherhood, al qaeda, and the ottomans. Countries that were once allied with the US, like the Balkans, Canada, Latin American States, African non-islamist states, S Korea, Greece, and Cyprus have now moved on and are consolidating their new alliances with each other in the name of freedom as they develop new security and economic alliances.

    Thanks to obama and hillary, the US has become the newest islamist third world country with obama kool aid slurpers now OPENLY referring to him as their "massa, lord, and savior." Lock and load Americans. This is a deja vu of Germany 1930s.

    See in TV!

  3. Rivka Cubine says:

    One despicable despot down (Mubarak) another takes his place, this one worse than the first (Morsi).

  4. So if Morsi falls, who is the guarantor of the cease fire?

    Oh wait, that's right, I don't care.

  5. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    And what makes you think morsi will "guarantee" the lull (it is nowhere near a cease fie)

  6. Rivka Cubine says:

    The cease fire is only a way to allow Hamas to re-arm. The bigger question is, if Morsi falls, who will take his place, someone even more radical?!

  7. Ken Sperber says:

    Thank you. Your comment made me actually laugh out loud.

  8. Joe Ruda says:

    do these simpleton egyptians think the brotherhood will just walk away…i expect thousands will die as islamists have bioundless thirst for blood.

  9. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Now that they have gotten the power, do you really think they would give it up?

  10. He did; that was the point of Egypt brokering the ceasefire.

    I have made my points on several different Facebook posts.

  11. Gil Gilman says:

    If it is not always so…then nearly…but one hopes…

  12. Daniel Melman says:

    boy that was short lived….

  13. James Eckber says:

    I am aware of President Morsi of Egypt.

  14. Gina Brown says:

    Note that one group of thugs (Socialists, et al) want to replace the current regime of thugs. Yep, the Arab Spring is full of blooming idiots.

  15. Rivka Cubine says:

    Unfortunately those idiots are armed and they want Jewish blood.

  16. Liad Bar-el says:

    The MB is armed with billions of dollars of American arms that Murbarak received for many years. Obama invited the outlawed MB to attend his Egyptian speech as president in 2008 and has always supported the MB. Obama has met with the MB more times in the white house than all the Israeli priministers visits combined. With such strong American support, Morsi will not fall. America is falling with Obama and nobody seems to care. http://www.Muslimbrotherhoodinamerica.com

    We can give them obama
