Across the world protests have taken place in solidarity with the Egyptian revolution.

Thousands took to the streets of Rabat, Morocco, to condemn the crimes of the military against unarmed civilians.

In Gaza, thousands of Palestinians turned out in solidarity, and hundreds protested in the East Javan city of Malang.

There were sizeable demonstrations in Glasgow and London with dozens of people joining the protests.

Outside the Egyptian embassy in Dublin the crowd of protesters burst into chants of “out, out, out” after TD Richard Boyd Barrett said the Egyptian ambassador should be “kicked out” of Ireland. 

The Middle East and North Africa Solidarity Network has launched an emergency statement on the military crackdown. 

It calls to “mobilise solidarity for those murdered, arrested and prosecuted for exercising their right to hold their rulers to account through protests, strikes and at the ballot box”.
