This is Tahrir Square in Cairo right now: occupied, lively & packed with protesters. 
Anti-Morsi demonstrators filled the Square last night after a decree issued on Thursday expanded his powers and shielded his decisions from any sort of judicial review until the election of a new parliament expected in the first half of 2013.
“We don’t want a dictatorship again. The Mubarak regime was a dictatorship. We had a revolution to have justice and freedom,” 32-year-old Ahmed Husseini said in Cairo.

Egyptian President Elect Mohammed Morsi • Opening his jacket to reveal he was not wearing a bulletproof vest while taking a symbolic oath of office in Tahrir Square in front of throngs of cheering suppoters. A bold move by the first Islamist president-elect, who was defying orders from military generals who were to hold Morsi’s official swearing-in ceremony in front of a high court on Saturday.   source (viafollow)
