Egypt - Arab spring II

According to reports coming out of Egypt, over 22 million people have signed a petition asking for President Morsi to step down.

That is a huge statement of no confidence and I would be surprised if he could resist this. I am glad that the protests taking place have been relatively free from violence so far, although there are a lot of army movements at all the major centres.

Remember that President Morsi was elected by the people and not a military puppet, and it has only been a year, if the people are this mad, what can be the reasons?

Worsening safety for women, breakdowns in the rule of law, crackdowns on cultural activity and police abuse - the Arab Spring wasn't meant to end like this.
