Newscast Media CAIRO, EgyptHundreds of protesters have been arriving in Tahrir Square since early morning in preparation for mass rallies against President Morsi's constitutional declaration and the draft constitution. Seventeen marches are expected to begin after Friday prayers from venues around Cairo including Giza, Tahrir Square, Abbaseya and a number of mosques. They will converge on the presidential palace in Heliopolis.

The protest has been variously termed 'Friday to oust the Brotherhood's militias', 'Red Card Friday', and 'Ultimatum Friday'.  Around twenty-one groups have announced their participation in the protests.

Hundreds of protesters have been holding a sit-in in Tahrir Square since 22 November when President Morsi's constitutional declaration rendered his decisions above judicial challenge and made the Islamist-dominated Shura Council and Constituent Assembly immune from dissolution by court order. 

Protesters marched around Tahrir Square early Friday chanting, "The people want the downfall of the Brotherhood and Morsi" and "Leave, leave Morsi and Badie," referring to the Muslim Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie.
