True to their word, Egypt’s liberals are holding a resounding rally in Tahrir Square to protest against the constitutional declaration recently issued by President Mursi, and by which he has given himself sweeping powers and immunised his decisions against being contested in courts of law. 
The morning saw thousands converge on the central Cairo Square, but it had to wait till the evening for the multitudes to come in. Rallies have been marching to Tahrir from various spots in Cairo. 
Journalists, judges and lawyers were among the groups which marched on Tahrir. Former presidential contenders Hamdeen Sabahy, Khaled Ali, and Amr Moussa were at the head of marches which set off respectively from Mustafa Mahmoud Square, in Giza, and Shubra in North Cairo, and Abdel-Moniem RiyadSquare in central Cairo. Mohamed ElBaradei, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency and a political activist, also led a march that left from Shubra.
Egyptians from all walks of life are joining in the demonstration. A number of the revolutionary forces represented in Tahrir have already expressed their intention for a prolonged sit-in, or until President Mursi rescinds the constitutional declaration.
