Protests in Egypt: Your experiences
Protest At Quba Palace
- jccarp, CNN iReport producer
In the 3rd day of protests, after the army has given Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi a 48 hour ultimatum, some protestors have moved to Quba Palace, the second Presidential palace where they believe Morsi is now located. They are chanting, marching around the palace incited by Morsi's newest midnight speech saying he won't back down. Signs have been placed on the gates saying "The Palace is Closed until we find a New President" and "Game Over."
A new chant joins the ranks of revolutionaries " قالو صوت المراء عوره وصوت المراء ثورة ثورة " translation " "They say women's voice is lustful, woman's voice is revolutionary!" and all the women cheer...
Quba palace like Tahrir has a square where people collect, and a group of people is working to prevent harassment of women and stopping protestors from insulting soldiers stationed within the palace gates.
