Ahram Online, Friday 5 Jul 2013

The alliance in support of Mohamed Morsi demands his reinstatement, calls for dialogue on constitution and dismissal of all decisions declared by Egypt armed forces

The National Alliance to Support Legitimacy released a statement listing the demands of the hundreds of thousands of protesters in Cairo's streets.

Protesters heeded calls by Islamists for a "Friday of Rejection" to protest the removal of Mohamed Morsi from the presidency.

The demands include: the reinstatement of "the legitimate elected president in accordance to the constitution and law," the dismissal of all unconstitutional decisions declared by the armed forces and by which it "usurped power," to continue implementing the constitution voted for by the people and start a dialogue to amend several of its articles, to hold accountable officials responsible for oppressive tactics used in the killing of demonstrators and the arrest of political leaders and the closure of satellite channels.

Hundreds of thousands of Morsi supporters continued to demonstrate at Rabaa Al-Adawiya Square in Cairo's Nasr City and thousands more at the Republican Guard headquarters in Cairo's Heliopolis district and at the state-run Egyptian Radio and Television Union in Cairo's Maspero district.

Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Badie gave a speech at Rabaa Al-Adawiya sit-in calling on supporters to continue demonstrating until Mohamed Morsi is reinstated. He also vowed to remain peaceful.
