Anti-Morsi Protests Rage

Upward of 100 people were reportedly injured Tuesday after upward of 200,000 protesters stormed Tahrir Square in Egypt. It was the fourth day of demonstrations since President Mohamed Morsi announced a decree expanding his powers and protecting his decisions from court challenges. Though the demonstrations have been mostly concentrated in Tahrir Square, the site of the 2011 uprising that ousted longtime dictator Hosni Mubarak, anti-Morsi rage has spread throughout the country. “We don’t want a dictatorship again. The Mubarak regime was a dictatorship. We had a revolution to have justice and freedom,” said one protester.
