Islamists to demonstrate in Cairo, Alexandria, Assiut Tuesday to support Morsy

Islamist forces are organizing three mass demonstrations in Cairo, Alexandria and Assiut on Tuesday, titled “National Consensus,” in support of President Mohamed Morsy’s push to complete a constitutional referendum by 15 December.

Helmy al-Gazzar, secretary general of the Freedom and Justice Party in Giza, said a Brotherhood march will take off from Rabaa al-Adaweya Mosque in Nasr City to join another march organized by Salafis from Rashdan Mosque. The group expects the demonstrations to number in the millions.

On Saturday last week, tens of thousands of Islamists gathered at Renaissance Square in front of Cairo University to support Morsy's 22 November constitutional declaration. Thousands of supporters were bussed into Cairo from outside governorates to increase the protest's numbers.
