Anti-Morsi graffiti is stenciled on the walls of Mohammed Mahmoud Street near Tahrir Square. The graffiti reads, "Ikhwan's constitution is void," and "Their constitution is not ours." Many opponents feel the draft puts too much emphasis on Islamic law.

A protester in Tahrir Square holds an anti-constitution banner. One complaint among demonstrators is that the constituent assembly, which drafted the constitution, did not accurately represent the people.

A large billboard overhanging Tahrir Square reads, "With the constitution, the wheel (of production) will start running." Advocates of the "yes" vote associate financial stability and security with the approval of the constitution.

The Freedom and Justice Party - which Morsi heads - organises an awareness campaign on the constitution. The Muslim Brotherhood has pledged to back the proposed constitution.

Opponents of Morsi carry a large "no" sign, and a banner that reads "no to a referendum written in blood" as they stand atop one of the walls built by the army around the presidential palace. The crisis has necessitated a ramping up of security around the palace, which has been the focal point of anti-Morsi protests.
