Mohamed Morsi supporters to march on US embassy

Supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi plan to march Sunday on a number of foreign embassies, especially the American, to protest what they describe as a failure to condemn the military coup against the elected president.

The National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy, a coalition of largely Islamist parties and groups, announced organizing five separate marches on foreign embassies in Cairo.

"The first march will be to the US Embassy to unmask the role of the embassy and the US administration in arranging and supporting the military coup against democracy and demand the expulsion of the ambassador," it said in a statement.

The alliance said protesters will also march on other foreign embassies, but declined to name any of them.

"Protesters will be told of the embassy name immediately before the march," a source with the alliance told Anadolu Agency.

The army ousted Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president, on July 3 following mass protests against his regime.

It suspended the constitution and installed Adly Mansour, the head of the constitutional court, as interim president.

Morsi's supporters have since been staging mass protests and sit-ins across the capital and nationwide to defend his democratic legitimacy and demand his reinstatement.

God only knows why the United States gave Egypt over one billion dollars in aid when the Muslim Brotherhood was running the Egyptian government. Egypt is not a state of the United States and personally we shouldn't give this nation a dime in aid regardless of who is running the company until they afford total religious freedom and freedom of speech!
