  On July the 3rd 2013 a coup d’etat lead by General Abdel Fatal El-Sisi removed from the power president Mohamed Morsi and suspended the Constitution. After few hours thousands of Muslim Brotherhoods and members of civic movements organize permanent sit-in in Cairo. The main one in Rabaa al-Adawiya area.
