Morsi groups push message on makeshift media

Targeted by a crackdown on press freedom, many work voluntarily to promote "anti-coup" campaign.

    Using social media and traditional broadcasting methods, Egyptians who support the deposed President Mohamed Morsi are working to promote their campaign through makeshift media channels.

    Working voluntarily on shifts, they are trying to overcome a crackdown on pro-Morsi media by security forces and send a message to the international community that they do not recognise an unelected interim government.
