The recent marches throughout Egypt have spread around the world as pockets of demonstrators protested against the Egyptian president.
Over the weekend a march was called in New York City for those who oppose President Mohamed Morsy’s constitutional declaration. Dozens of Egyptians showed up and chanted “down with the rule of the supreme guide” and held signs that read “we reject the dictatorial decree” and “don’t be a pharaoh.”
A smaller number of pro-Morsy demonstrators lined the other side of a busy New York street as traffic and barricades kept the two groups apart.
A few dozen people gathered and chanted anti-Morsy slogans in Washington DC at both the White House and the Egyptian embassy.
Dozens gathered in downtown Toronto, bundled against the cold weather, and took aim at President Morsy, and also perceived US support. One Canadian woman held a sign that read “democracy in the 21st century is the protection of minorities… whatever they are.”
In Paris, a handful of Egyptians chanted against Morsy with the Eiffel Tower glowing in the background. Egyptians in Sydney chanted together behind a long Egyptian flag. In Spain, Egyptian women held up signs with the Arabic symbol for “no.”
