Millions of Egyptians Rise Up Against Coup; Republican Guard Massacre Peaceful Protesters
Millions of Egyptians Rise Up Against Coup; Republican Guard Massacre Peaceful Protesters
Systematic brutality, widespread atrocities and plain downright bloody massacres are back on the streets of Cairo and all provinces across Egypt as security forces face unarmed demonstrators with live bullets.
Friday, July 5,2013 23:10

A raised stage set up in Rabaa Al-Adaweya Square announced that the number of demonstrators reached 3 million who reject the treacherous military coup against elected President Mohamed Morsi. More mass marches are still pouring in onto the already packed square.

From the same stage, it was also announced that there are 3 million-man marches and demonstrations in Cairo, at Rabaa Al-Adaweya Square, Nahda Square and Republican Guard compound.

Dr. Bassem Ouda, the Minister of Supply (who has already resigned in protest of the military take-over), was carried by demonstrators high on their heads, leading a massive march to the University Bridge and on to Nahda Square platform.

Signaling the return to the era of persecution and state-sponsored massacres Friday, the Republican Guard opened fire at thousands of peaceful pro-democracy demonstrators demanding the return of President Morsi.

Republican Guard forces fired tear gas canisters and live bullets into crowds of demonstrators, killing dozens and wounding hundreds, according to eyewitness reports.

An increasing number of demonstrators are joining a massive rally outside the Republican Guard compound where additional marches coming from Rabaa Al-Adaweya mosque joined a sit-in in peaceful support for the victims of the massacre there.

Meanwhile, more masses of Egyptian people rallied in most of the governorates of Egypt to denounce the heinous, brutal military coup.
