Egypt is bracing for new protests today over President Mohamed Morsi's hotly contested effort to hold a referendum on a controversial draft constitution. Ahead of today's rallies, masked gunmen attacked opposition protesters camped out in Tahrir Square overnight, injuring more than a dozen. At least seven people have died in clashes and hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets since Morsi unilaterally expanded his powers last month. Democracy Now!'s Sharif Abdel Kouddous files a report from Cairo. In this video, he interviews Gehad El-Haddad, a senior adviser to the Muslim Brotherhood; American University Professor Khaled Fahmy; National Salvation Front spokesman Khaled Dawoud; writer Ahmed Shokr; and several demonstrators.
