VIDEO: Tens of thousands of anti-Morsi artists march to Tahrir with wooden clogs

Egyptian artists and others stage march from culture ministry to Tahrir Square holding wooden clogs to demand the ouster of Egypt's President Morsi

Thousands of protesters made up of artists and others marched from the culture ministry in Zamalek to Tahrir Square holding wooden clogs and banging them together for 30 June protests against embattled President Mohamed Morsi.

The clogs are meant to recall 13th-century Egyptian ruler Shagaret El-Dor, who was beaten to death with wooden clogs by the people after being blamed for the death of her husband, Ezz El-Din Aybak.
