Protesters swarm Presidential Palace

Protesters continued to flock to the Presidential Palace in Heliopolis on Monday to voice their demands to President Mohamed Morsy.

All palace gates aside from the main gate have been blocked off as a result of the protests.

Security personnel allowed a number of citizens inside the palace. Sources told Al-Masry Al-Youm that a delegation of Ceramica Cleopatra workers entered the palace and presented their demands to the president’s administrative staff. The source added that the workers wanted an audience with Morsy himself.

One protester, who identified herself only as Shadia, said she had come to demand an increase in the monthly support provided under the Child Pension Law from LE56 to LE150, saying that the president's office received her request and promised to respond within a week.

Meanwhile, security personnel were forced to physically remove one protester who made it inside the gates and refused to leave.
