    Farewell Morsy- June 30th Protest


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Egyptian iReporter and photographer Boraie captured remarkable scenes of protesters on the streets in Cairo, Sunday, as demonstrations against Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy (and some from his supporters) clogged the city's streets. "The atmosphere was very emotional, seeing all Egyptians from all [walks] of life," he said. "Different areas of Cairo came along to call for President Morsy to step down."
    - sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer

    As an Egyptian who participated in the first revolution in 2011, I wanted to document the June 30th protest to oust President Mohamed Morsy.


    What I was not prepared for was the amount of people who were in or near Tahrir. During the protests in January 2011 I never witnessed crowds as large as they were yesterday.


    My photographs are taken in and around Tahrir Square, the meeting point of numerous marches from around the city. My pictures capture the individual people that came; these faces are young and old, men and women, Muslims and Christians, and rich and poor.


    These are the faces of Egypt that no longer support the current regime.
