Rallies in Egypt Mark Uprising Anniversary
by News Editor
WSJ – CAIRO – Two years after Egypt’s revolution began, the country’s schism was on display Friday as the mainly liberal and secular opposition held giant rallies saying the goals of the pro-democracy uprising haven’t been met and denouncing Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
Thousands of protesters filled Cairo’s central Tahrir Square, where the January 2011 uprising was born, and the area outside the presidential palace in the city’s Heliopolis district. Throughout these places, the iconic Arab Spring chants of “Erha! Erhal!” or “leave, leave” and “the people want to topple the regime” rang out.
