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.

Definitely a live-stream to keep bookmarked in the days and weeks to come. It seems a safe bet these protests will continue, until such a time as Morsi clarifies his intentions, or cedes back the extralegal authority he’s claimed for himself.

The presidency reiterates the temporary nature of those measures, which are not intended to concentrate power. The presidency stresses its firm commitment to engage all political forces in the inclusive democratic dialogue to reach a common ground.
A statement from Egyptian president Mohammad Morsi • Responding to the avalanche of protest set off by a recent decree, which granted him extralegal, unilateral authority, and halted all legal challenges against members of the upper house of parliament, and the committee constructing the state’s new constitution. Until the constitution is drafted, there is in fact no lower house of parliament, meaning Morsi has effectively barred legal action from being taken against the government. Protests have exploded back into Tharir Square over the past few days in response, leading to Morsi’s attempts to soothe the growing public perception that he harbors dictatorial designs of his own. source
