Live blog of Muslim Brotherhood’s ‘Day of Rejection’

In the past two years the Muslim Brotherhood has shown the ability to put millions of people on the street.

They have called for a day of protest today over the removal of Mohamed Morsi from office.

We’ll have live coverage and updates.

This AP article gives interesting background on how Morsi was removed, and how it was clear it would happen two weeks ago, In his final days, Morsi was isolated but defiant:

In the end, Egypt’s first freely elected president found himself isolated, with allies abandoning him and no one in the army or police willing to support him.

Even his Republican Guards simply stepped away as army commandos came to take him to an undisclosed Defense Ministry facility….

The African Union has suspended Egypt, and Turkey — which has an Islamist political party in power and has seen protests — is in the lead in condemning the removal of Morsi.
