Thousands Protest Mohammed Morsi in Egypt [Video]

'We're gonna stay on the street until he leaves'

Thousands of opponents of Egypt's Islamist president poured out onto the streets in Cairo and across much of the nation Sunday, launching an all-out push to force Mohammed Morsi from office on the one-year anniversary of his inauguration

Thousands of opponents of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square and outside the presidential palace on Sunday morning ahead of planned mass protests aimed at forcing the president out of office.

The new round of demonstrations could plunge Egypt once again into a dangerous round of civil unrest, and reflect the growing polarisation of the nation since President Morsi took power, with the president and his allies in one camp and seculars, liberals, moderate Muslims and Christians on the other.

Many Egyptians are dissatisfied with the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood and they have not been afraid to show their displeasure. More than 22 million have signed a petition calling for the country's Islamist president to step down, according to Tamarod, which means "rebel" in Arabic, the group that organised the petition campaign.
