'The Third Square' denounce both the army and the Brotherhood.

A small group of protesters, maybe 100 or so, held a protest in Sphinx Square in Giza to denounce both the army and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Protesters called it the "Third Square," saying they did not feel represented by the pro-military rally in Tahrir Square, nor the pro-Morsi demonstration in Nasr City. They held signs condemning both sides, calling them "military fascists" and "religious fascists."

They distributed a leaflet saying that they've been protesting for two-and-a-half years, first against Hosni Mubarak, then the 16-month period of military rule which followed his ouster, and then against now-deposed president Mohamed Morsi. They saw today's protest as a continuation of that struggle.
