The protests in Egypt have continued to grow in recent days, with many people calling for another revolution and the removal of president Mohammed Morsi. It is highly possible that people realize that their revolution was co-opted with a western democracy. Instead of a western democracy, maybe these people actually want freedom, and maybe they wont stop until they get it.
Overall the revolution has not been controlled by the general population or the people in the streets, but rather the global media and the deeply rooted Egyptian military industry complex. What started out as a revolution, became nothing more than a military coup, simply replacing the old boss with a new one who was equally authoritarian.
In the capital, Cairo, tens of thousands of people are massed in Tahrir Square and outside the presidential palace. They have vowed to stay on until Mr Morsi steps down. Stones and petrol bombs were thrown at the headquarters of the governing Muslim Brotherhood in the city. Four people died in violent incidents in provincial cities.
As shown in the picture above, protesters also used laser pointers to fight back against a helicopter that was deployed above the presidential palace.
