The National Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy said on Thursday that sit-ins supporting former president Mohamed Morsi will continue.
The coalition said it recognizes neither the military coup’s cabinet nor its decisions.
The Interior Ministry issued a statement earlier asking all supporters of Mohamed Morsi to end the sit-ins in Cairo after it received instructions from Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi’s cabinet to disperse the sit-ins.
In a statement it issued, the coalition supporting Mohamed Morsi said that the revolution “continues despite all threats”.
It added that protests against Mohamed Morsi taking place in in Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda Squares as well as other squares is in reality a continuance for the revolution the people have sparked on January 25, 2011.
The alliance said that this blessed revolution continues until it achieves its goals. Chief among those goals is retrieving what the military coup took by force.
The people of Egypt will remain steadfast in the face of the Mohamed Morsi coup that brought back the police state in its worst form, the alliance stated.
