Students Against the Coup called for protests at a number of universities across Egypt on Wednesday against mass death sentences and political detainment.

The pro-Morsi student protests, called “We will not bow”, are scheduled to start mid-day at the universities of Cairo, Al-Azhar, Minya, Zagazig, Tanta, and Mansoura, according to a statement.

The group said it expects security to be heavy because the Anti-Coup Alliance is also planning demonstrations Wednesday. They anticipate clashes.

The student union of the Faculty of Engineering at Cairo University warned students that it may not be safe to be on campus or near the premises of the university during the protests.

No action has been taken to improve campus safety since two students were injured last week after clashes erupted between security forces and protesters.
