Thousands of protesters battled on the streets outside of the presidential palace in Cairo Thursday night, demanding President Mohammed Morsi be removed from office for seizing too much power.
Mori's supporters fought back and six people were killed and nearly 700 injured.
The violence brings back memories of the revolution that happened only two years ago when Egyptians overthrew then-President Hosni Mubarak.
"He has become, like, you think you didn't like Mubarak? This is worse than Mubarak," activist and filmmaker Nadia Kamal said.
Morsi refuses to give up absolute power. In a nationally televised speech Thursday night he refused to retract the disputed constitution drafted by his allies.
