    Egypt celebrate's after three days of protesting to overthrow President Morsy.

    For the past three days millions of Egyptians went down to protest in across the country in an effort to overthrow now ex-President Mohamed Morsy. Egyptians were unhappy with Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood's broken promises of inclusion, freedom of speech and political expression, and economic stability.

    With army providing security by helicopters flying overhead, Egyptians celebrate their successful overthrow of another oppressive ruler.

    While many in the world debate whether or not what happened on July 3rd was a military coup, Egyptians feel that it was truly through the efforts of ordinary citizens who took to the street that Morsy is no longer the president. Many in the opposition feel that because they have been routinely shut out of the political process their only option to give voice to their concerns was through street protests.

    Egyptians have a way of actively participating in the political process and they are evolve politically towards a better democracy that is more inclusive.
