Pro-Morsi alliance urges boycott of 'coup supporters'

World Bulletin / News Desk

A coalition of largely Islamist parties and figures supportive of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on Tuesday called on all Egyptians to boycott all bodies that supported Morsi's July 3 ouster by the army – a move they consider a "military coup."

The National Alliance for the Defense of Legitimacy urged citizens "to use the weapon of boycott against media outlets, businessmen and countries that showed support for the military coup," the pro-Morsi coalition said in a statement.

The alliance also condemned the killing of 25 Egyptian policemen in a Monday attack in the northern Sinai Peninsula, as well as the death of 36 prisoners – allegedly Muslim Brotherhood members – while in police custody on Sunday.

"We accuse the security forces affiliated with the coup government of being behind this incident [the Sinai attack] to divert attention from the prisoner massacre," the statement said.

The alliance also denounced the ongoing wave of attacks targeting churches and police stations, stressing the coalition's commitment to peaceful protest in its pursuit "to restore legitimacy and reject the coup."
