The pro-Morsi alliance that has demonstrated continuously over the past few months called for more protests on Friday.
In a statement issued Thursday, the Muslim Brotherhood-backed alliance claimed that “revolutionary mobility” was increasing in its favour and public anger was increasing in the face of the frivolous coup.”
The group dubbed its Friday demonstrations “at your service, mother of the martyr” and came at the conclusion of the alliance’s “women are the soul of the revolution” week of marches and protests as a “tribute to the resilience of Egyptian women in the face of the cowardly coup.”
The alliance also called for demonstrations on Saturday in Alexandria in solidarity with the sentenced pro-Morsi female protester and labour protests Sunday under the banner “workers are an arm of the revolution”
Earlier this week the Anti-Coup Alliance announced its “total rejection” of the upcoming constitutional referendum, saying it would waste “billions of Egyptian pounds” and be “potentially rigged and certainly unconstitutional.” It added that the referendum only served as justification for western governments to recognise the Egyptian “coup government” and the alliance stressed its rejection of “any action that builds on the military coup.”
