Pro-Morsy group calls for million-man march

A group supporting deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy have called for a million-man march from 33 different mosques Friday following noon prayers under the banner of "Egypt against the coup," according to a statement released Thursday by the Anti-Coup Prodemocracy Alliance.

They also called on "all free people in all countries of the world to demonstrate peacefully" in support of their marches, according to the statement.

    "Military junta vows to crush pro-Morsy protests"
    "House refuses to stop aid to Egypt".
    Sure fire recipe for more blood shed and unrest in the region.

      Only 13 votes against in the House, including Rand Paul, who sponsored it, and of course McConnell, who voted very quietly, not wanting to upset the TP.

      Sorry, s/b voted for it.
      Enzi from WY voted for it, also, which is surprising, given Liz Cheney's hopes to unseat Enzi. One would think he'd want to keep up the status quo.

    @Scottish Mama
    These marches everywhere are called 'Man' marches somehow. You are the first one to point this out.
