New Wave of Egyptian Revolution

On 25 January 2011, the people of Egypt took to the streets to demand the overthrow of then President Hosni Mubarak's regime. Although the revolution was ultimately successful in toppling Mubarak's government, widespread unrest has led to an ongoing Egyptian revolution, now targeted at President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.
In 2012 and 2013 Egyptian protests started on 19 November to mark the first anniversary of bloody clashes between police and protesters demanding civil rules that resulted in the death of at least 40 people, no one has been held accountable for those deaths.
On 22 November 2012, President Morsi granted himself unlimited powers saying he needed to protect the nation and have the power to legislate without judicial oversight. He also announced a national referendum on an Islamist-written draft constitution.
Anti-presidential and anti-constitutional demonstrations were organized by pro-democratic, liberal, leftist, secularist and Christian opposition organizations and individuals.
The new constitution was approved on the 15 and 22 December 2012 and the protest in Egypt continue.
