Protesters marched today, Friday, to the presidential palace in protest of President Mohamed Morsy’s latest constitutional decree and constitutional referendum set to be on December 15.
Morsy relayed a live speech Thursday night in an attempt to defuse growing anger against him. Opposition found his speech to be “disappointing” and rallied people to march to the presidential palace to protest as well as Tahrir square.
The marches come in wake of deadly clashes witnessed on Wednesday night in front of the presidential palace which left six dead and over 400 injured.
