Dozens of protests spread across the country on the first Friday since the commemoration President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi’s first 100 days in power.
“Protests began on Friday morning in most of Egypt’s towns and villages while larger demonstrations took off from mosques after Friday prayers,” said Islam Tawfiq, one of the demonstrators in Cairo.
Demonstrators’ chants are coloured with a range of demands and condemnations: down with the military, freedom for political prisoners, a change in the deteriorating standards of living and increasing prices and an end to the regular power cuts, demonstrators in Egypt told MEE.
“What’s becoming more popular now is that protesters make an oath at each demonstration promising to continue the revolution and achieve the 25 January revolutionary demands as well as take vengeance for all martyrs and political prisoners,” said Diaa Sawy, spokesperson for the coalition for Youth against the Coup.
