Egypt’s Papers Say “No to Dictatorship”

The private newspapers Al-Watan, Al-Tahrir, Youm7, Al-Wafd, and others ran the same headline: “No to dictatorship” in an expression of opposition to the newly passed constitution. About 5,000 protesters continue to sit in front of the Supreme Constitutional Court today.

This move is an example of increasing civil disobedience from the media, tourism, and judicial sectors in Egypt against President Morsi.

The Supreme Judicial Council announced that the judiciary would monitor the recently-announced December 15 constitutional referendum.
