In Pictures: Tahrir square reacts to Morsi’s speech
Anger prevails over the square following the president’s speech
Protesters in Tahrir square were filled with anger following President Mohamed Morsi’s speech Wednesday night in which he addressed the nation prior to demonstrations calling for his ousting on 30 June. Some held high their shoes as a sign of anger as many chanted “leave” and “liar” during the speech. Ultras fans joined the protesters in the square with their well-known chants, drums and fireworks.
Calls for 30 June demonstrations have been issued by Tamarod (Rebellion) campaign which has announced earlier this week that they have collected 15 million signatures calling for the removal of Morsi.
