CAIRO - 30 June 2019: Visitors will have free-access to Cairo's public parks on Sunday on the occasion of the 6th anniversary of the June 30 Revolution, according to a statement issued by Cairo governor Khaled Abdel Aal on Saturday.
Cairo governorate also announced a discount of 50 percent on all trips of river-bus, marking the day.
Discounts and free access to public services and parks are usually offered by the state on occasion of national days.
Meanwhile, the Aswan and Nubia Archaeological Zone announced the opening the door of the ancient temples to follow up on the sound and light shows on Sunday evening, in conjunction with the anniversary of the June 30th revolution.
Security measures are tightened around public facilities and in the streets ahead of the occasion.
On June 30, 2013, Egyptians took to the streets and public squares to demand the ouster of former Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated President Mohamed Morsi, a year after he was sworn in as the president of Egypt. The massive protests led to Morsi’s sacking; henceforth, Brotherhood leaders were either arrested over violent acts, or fled the country.
