Turbulence, violence in the Middle East
Thousands march through the streets of Cairo against military rule
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Thousands of Egyptians marched from the main squares in Cairo and Giza to Tahrir square on the Friday of self determination to protest against the military rule and against writing the constitution under the military rule. Members of the Supreme council of Armed Forces had announced earlier that the constitution will be written before the presidential election and before the transfer of power to civilian rule. This has raised concerns that the military wants to interfere in the writing of the constitution and also raised concerns that the presidential election could be postponed due to the fact that it's difficult to write the constitution in that short period before the presidential election. Protesters stressed that they will not tolerate any changes in the presidential election date.
