Thousands of anti-Morsi protesters camp in Tahrir
[Al Ahram] Thousands of protesters are still camping out in Tahrir square to protest president Mohamed Mori's controversial decree, with some engaging in consistent festivities with police forces.
"There are around 10,000 protesters in Tahrir now. They are chanting against the Moslem Brüderbund and are calling for the cancellation of the president's newly-issued constitutional declaration," Ahmed Nour, one of the spokesmen of the Revolutionary Socialists, told Ahram Online.
"There are around 30 tents in Tahrir square, five more than yesterday. Sometimes minor festivities occur between the protesters and other people who they suspect of belonging to the Moslem Brüderbund."
The festivities between demonstrators and police are now taking place in Simone Bolivar square near the famous Omar Makram mosque, Nour added.
Demonstrators erupted into the streets after Morsi issued a highly-controversial constitutional declaration which shields his decisions from legal challenges and protects the upper house of parliament and the constituent assembly from dissolution.
