On Friday, the Egyptian Canadian Coalition for Democracy  held a demonstration  to protest against what they see as increasing injustices in Egypt.

Mohammed Morsi, the former Egyptian President, was sentenced to death on May 16th for  allegedly escaping prison during the 2011 uprising that toppled Morsi’s predecessor, Hosni Mubarak. He fell from power in 2013 after massive popular protests.

Participants at the demonstration in Montreal were flying egyptian flags and singing for peace and justice in their country of origin.
