The anti-Morsi opposition stated on Sunday that it seeks to hold a peaceful protest on June 30 and demanded protection against Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters and other Islamist groups, which have threatened violence against the protesters, according to a report on the Egyptian website Ahram Online on Monday.

The opposition statement said that these threats would not stop the protests and the call for early presidential elections. On Saturday, the opposition accused Brotherhood members of attacking their peaceful rally in Mansoura, in the Nile Delta, injuring four.

The rebels claim to have gathered 15 million signatures from those unhappy with Morsi, in order to force early presidential elections, according to the report.

Islamist groups claimed earlier this month that they have collected two million signatures in support of Morsi.
