Egyptians living in the United States staged a rally on Saturday against the military coup and Egyptian Defense Minister Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi in Times Square.

Most of the protesters were women and children, who wore t-shirts with Rabaa sign and walked around with a Sisi portrayed puppet.

The group carried 'Sisi must go' placards and unfurled banners in favor of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. 

"More than 100 days have passed since the bloody military coup and the results are bitter at all levels, let alone the suppression of anti-coup protests," National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, a coalition of pro-democracy groups, to mark 100 days since the Islamist president's ouster said in a statement on Thursday.

Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected leader, was removed from power by the military following massive, well-coordinated demonstrations against his presidency that began on June 30.
