    Egypt Uprising 2013 - June 30, the second wave of the revolution has started!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter MahmoudGamal attended Sunday's protests in Cairo against President Mohamed Morsy and his government. His photos capture the vibrancy of the protests -- from a dog wearing an anti-Morsy shirt to protesters waving red cards like referees in a football game, calling on Morsy to resign. "Rules were put [out] for the protesters to never chant for or against the army or the police, but when a military helicopter started flying over [the area] many cheered for it," he said. "The loudest chant, though, was 'LEAVE.'"

    Updates  - Egypt, June 30, 2013**


    The second wave of the revolution has started! June 30 began as a much  bigger movement than January 25. After a majority of Egyptians were fed  up with Muslim Brotherhood rule they took their decision and lead the  politicians to the street.  June 30 made a great start with millions of people revolting in almost  all governorates of Egypt. With red cards and whistles, Egypt declared  Morsy out.

    Rules were put for the protesters to never chant for or  against the army or the police, but when a military helicopter started  flying over Ithadeya many cheered for it. The loudest chant though was  "LEAVE", all protesters united on one aim, to topple the Islamist  fascist regime. 

    Meanwhile a few clashes between the regime supporters and  revolutionaries took place in Assuyt and Beheira, leaving at least five  dead and around 80 injured. In Cairo, the clashes were in front of the  Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in Mokkatam where supporters fired  bird-shot from the building and where met with Molotov cocktails from  the protesters resulting in small fires inside the building.

    The Egyptian People did one final warm up before the Red Card comes out.  Tamarod Movement (Rebel) held a press conference early Saturday at the  Journalists Syndicate, the movement's founder announced that the final  count was more than 22 million signatures.

    He called upon the people to  protest on June 30 to continue what they started and topple the first  civilian elected president one year after his inauguration for his  failure in achieving the main objectives of the January 25 Revolution as  well as putting the Muslim Brotherhood in control of the top of power  of all country's sides of power.

    He also asserted that the number of  signatures was a reflection of how much the public has turned against  Morsy. It is noteworthy that the number of signatures collected is more  than 85% of the number of voters in the presidential elections' second  round. Egyptians took their decision and raised the red card against President  Mohamed Morsy!
