Friday, the 5th of December, had many calls for protests by various movements -- including Anticoup aliance -- in Egypt. This was the first Friday after Mubarak was cleared from all charges and some videos that are said to have been leaked were being circulated on social media. CM team was monitoring the anticoup protests that went out on the 5th of December. You can view and download the raw data of our monitoring in Arabic and English.
Last week we monitored monitored 85 anticoup events in 15 governorates. This week we monitored 66 anticoup events in 12 governorates. The top three governorates this week were Alexandria, Giza and Dakahlia.
Rallies were the most common type of events, followed by human chains and stands. Other protest forms, namely vehicle rallies also happened.
There was an array of protest organizers this Friday. We were unable to identify the organizers of a large number of protests. The pie chart bellow does not consider protests with unidentifiable organizers. By considering the subset of protests with known organiers as shown bellow we note that Anticoup Aliance organized a large majority of the protests -- 6 in 10 protests. The remaining protests were organized by youth, students and ultras groups.
