A number of protests was announced within Cairo and in certain governorates on Friday as part of the “youth are pillars of the revolution” Friday.
Protests set out after Friday prayers from different mosques in Cairo and Giza, setting out from Al Iman mosque in Nasr City, Al Rian mosque in Maadi, Al Istiqama mosque in Giza.
Several other governorates are also witnessing protests, including Alexandria, Port Said, Sharqia and Minya.
The protests came after the National Coalition for Legitimacy, the Muslim Brotherhood youth and the Anti-Coup Youth Movement called for mass protests denouncing the Raba’a dispersal and the 30 June “coup”.
Unconfirmed reports claim that several of the Cairo protests will be heading towards Mostafa Mahmoud square in Mohandessin.
Protests also broke out on Friday in the Giza village of Kerdasa, which is host to a massive security operation that started on Thursday.
The Anti-Coup Youth Movement released a statement on Monday, 16 September, appealing to the people to carry out civil disobedience on Sunday by refraining from going to work: ”We call on the people to go out to demonstrate in all the streets of Egypt and assemble in the main squares since early morning Sunday.”
