Early in the morning of the anticipated 30 June, Tahrir Square is packed and is expected to fill up further when marches converge onto the historical square. The opposition protesters are marching to the Downtown Square and the presidential palace in protests that coincide with the one year anniversary of President Mohamed Morsi’s rise to power.
In late April, a petition campaign to withdraw confidence from the president was launched, under the name Tamarod (Rebellion). Tamarod also calls for early presidential elections. The campaign claimed on Saturday to have gathered 22 million signatures.
