Opposition parties in Egypt that have formed a coalition planning mass protests on June 30, a date marking President Mohammed Mursi’s first anniversary in power, have announced a roadmap for their rallies.
Speaking at a conference in Giza on Saturday, the bloc’s figureheads announced plans for the week leading up to June 30.
Among the plans, a human chain protest against the Muslim Brotherhood, which Mursi hails from, and smaller demonstrations across the country will call for more people to sign up for a “rebellion” petition urging Mursi to hold early elections.
“On 27 June, a rally is planned to take place in Cairo’s Sayeda Zeinab district. On 28 June, another rally is planned to start from Cairo’s Al-Azhar district, marching to Tahrir Square protesting the use of mosques in urging people not to rebel against the president,” Egypt’s Ahram Online new site reported.
“As for 30 June, political representatives said several demonstrations are planned to snowball through the different parts of Egypt. The final starting destinations are to be announced end of week.
