Tigrai Online - June 28, 2013
On Friday thousands of protesters vowed to remain in Tahrir Square in their call for the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi, and many started erecting tents in preparation for mass demonstrations on 30 June.
Marches from various locations in Cairo, including Talaat Harb Street, Mostafa Mahmoud and Sayeda Zeinab, brought in thousands of protesters into the square in the afternoon.
“We are staying for the long run, we are not leaving before [Morsi] does,” yelled one protester in the square.
A main stage has been set up in the square to lead the protesters’ chants, most of which echo the calls heard in demonstrations of the past two years, demanding the fall of the regime. The atmosphere of the square expressed the dedication of those present, many of whom said that this protest and sit-in are being held to gather momentum for 30 June.
