Imaginary protests in Downtown Cairo and the streets of Giza

30/6/2013

Reda Abdel-Wodoud

In an attempt to persuade citizens to take to the streets and participate in protests, a number of cars with microphones attached to them sporadically moved round the streets of Downtown Cairo and some streets in Giza playing recordings of protests. The loud noise caused annoyance to shop owners and residents.

A number of citizens sitting in coffee shops expressed their anger and astonishment at this attempt to rile up the street and delude citizens who preferred to stay at home because of the scenes of violence we are witnessing on television screens into thinking that protests have reached his street and house.
