    Tens of thousands march through the streets of Cairo

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Regular iReporter arasquare attended last night's protests in Cairo, Egypt, against Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy's decree extending his powers. He knew the route of the protesters' march, which began in Giza south of Cairo and headed to Tahrir Square, so positioned himself on a bridge to capture the hordes of people. "The atmosphere last night was great," he said. "There were people of all ages, men and women, people of different backgrounds ... I saw people who had never taken to the streets before." Clashes around Cairo's Tahrir Square continued on Wednesday, and further protests are expected on Friday in the country.

    Tens thousands of Egyptians marched from different parts of Cairo to Tahrir square on Tuesday, November 27, to protest against the new constitutional declaration issued by president Morsi. Men and women of all ages and social backgrounds took part in the protests. There's a general feeling of anger against Morsi for grabbing sweeping powers. People fear that this could be the birth of a new dictator, People chanted "This time we're serious, we won't leave the revolution to anyone", "Free Revolutionaries, we will continue the path" and "Down with Morsi". Chants in general were against the Muslim brotherhood, president Morsi, tMinistry of Interior and constitutional declaration. What seemed different this time is that there were protests who never took to the streets before and that indicates that there's general feeling that Egypt's future is danger.
