Comments from the live feed commentators from reuters.

"The Brothers stole our revolution," said Salah Saleh, a horse trainer at a central Cairo rally, voicing widespread criticism that Mursi refused to share out power after taking office and then failed to tackle Egypt's many woes.

demonstrators gather after deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi's detention over alleged contacts with Hamas.

The decision on whether or not to call the recent governmental transition of power in Egypt a "coup" means a lot to U.S. foreign policy (and aid) to Egypt.

U.S. law requires the government to cut off most of its annual $1.55 billion of aid to "any country whose duly elected head of government is deposed by military coup d'etat or decree" or toppled in "a coup d'etat or decree in which the military plays a decisive role."

so yeah. Now for the other side of the story, the muslim brotherhood:

"At the end of the day, we know all of these charges are nothing more than the fantasy of a few army generals and a military dictatorship," Brotherhood spokesman Gehad El-Haddad said. "We are continuing our protests on the streets."

This may actually be a true revolution. The one that Egypt has been robbed of 2 years ago by islam extremists. Everywhere else there are riots and have been armed revolts (Libya, Syria) they have been just the manifestations of Islam supremacism who has been fed up with secular government. Same for Egypt 2 years ago. But now, things may actually look up for the people and they may have a chance for a real democracy. ofc, this is what we said 2 years ago too. But this time they have previous experience to go by.
