Today on Your Call: Friday Media Roundtable
Has the military ouster of President Mohammed Morsi preserved the potential for democracy in Egypt – or ended it? On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the upheaval in the Arab world’s largest country. On June 30th, over 14 million Egyptians took to the street demanding that President Morsi step down and on July 3rd, the Egyptian military forced him out and suspended the constitution. Morsi supporters call it a coup; his opponents call it revolution 2.0 – but what kind of revolution is it? Will the military return civilian rule as promised? And what kind of democracy can emerge under these conditions? It’s Your Call, with Matt Martin and you.
