Political powers rejecting the recent constitutional declaration organized on Tuesday 27/11/2012 demonstrations in Cairo and governorates calling for annulling the constitutional declaration.

Thousands massed up in Tahrir Square in protest under the rubric "the Revolution has people to protect it".

Demonstrations called for renewing the formation of the constitution drafting panel and issuing a new legislation organizing retrial of the icons of the deposed regime and killers of martyrs without any sort of protection or immunity.

A large number of the symbols of the political action topped by Dr. Mohamed el-Baradei, Amr Moussa, Hamdeen Sabahi, Dr. Mohamed Abul Ghar and Dr. Sayed el-Badawi were keen to take part in these protests.

Protesters closed the streets leading to al-Tahrir Square and installed barbed wires in front of the Egyptian museum. Taking part in the protests was also a large number of journalists and lawyers who arrived in Tahrir Square from their syndicates.

Simon Bolivar square, in the vicinity of the US embassy in Cairo, witnessed clashes between protesters and security troops in spite of the human chains which were made as a buffer between the two sides.

While the field hospital in Talaat Harb Street received a large number of injured persons in the clashes, the Ministry of Health furnished 50 first aid cars.
