Friday protests in Egypt
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Thousands of Egyptians took to the streets of Egypt on Friday, November 30, to protest against the Constituent Assembly that doesn't represent all Egyptians and against the constitutional declaration issued by President Morsi that gives him sweeping powers and immunizes his decisions against courts orders. Protesters marched from different areas in Cairo and Giza cities to Tahrir square where a mass rally is organized. Many political parties and youth movements took part in the protests. People of all ages and social background participated in the protests. People chanted "Down with the constitutional declaration", "Down with the constituent assembly" , "Egypt is for all Egyptians", "Free revolutionaries, we will continue the path", "Oh freedom" and "Down with the Brotherhood rule". Protesters took to the streets because they felt that there is a deviation from the goals of the revolution.
