    Anti-coup march after a hundred days of coup

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     AhmedMohamed documented protesting in Alexandria, Egypt. Protesters were chanting that a military coup is the equivalent to terrorism, and they were demanding an end to the militaristic ruling in Egypt and the return of President Morsi to office. He says he supports the protesting and also wants to see an end to the military ruling. 'The crimes that have been committed against protesters after the military coup cannot be described any other way then as being a state terrorism and crimes against humanity,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    After more than a hundred days of the bloody coup that has killed more than 5 thousands Egyptians anti coup marches moved all around Egypt .
    Military forces backed with police and thugs blocked main squares to prevent marches from gathering together .
    Marches called for end of military role , asked for returning of the freely elected president Morsi ,returning of the constitution ,trials for the people who are responsible for the killing of more than 5 thousands protesters since the 3rd of July coup .
    In Alexandria many marches moved inside residential districts a way from the main roads and streets that were blocked by army ,police and armed men known as " baltagea " which mean thugs .
    One of the marches moved through Sidi Bishr destrict and was ended before reaching the main roads around the area to avoid being attacked by joint army and thugs forces .
    I talk a video for the march in 18/10/2013 by my mobile phone , the video shows the march and how residents interacts with it in the video protesters are chanting " coup is the terrorism "
