PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL Angry Egyptian protesters call for President Mohamed Mursi to step down after his televised speech on Thursday. Mursi said that plans for a referendum on a new constitution will push ahead no matter what. He also proposed a meeting with political leaders and his opponents. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) EGYPT'S PRESIDENT, MOHAMED MURSI, SAYING: ''I call for a full, productive dialogue with all figures and heads of parties, revolutionary youth and senior legal figures to meet this Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 12.30 at the Presidential Palace in order to reach an agreement that unites the nation." But the speech was not well received, with thousands marching and chanting for Mursi to quit. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) ANTI-MURSI DEMONSTRATOR, MOHAMED ADEL, SAYING: "He should leave. The people want to bring down the idiot. He is not a president he is an idiot. He does not care about these people." (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) ANTI-MURSI DEMONSTRATOR, RAMY KHALED, SAYING: "Leave, you should leave. The youth here are urging you to leave, because they are ready to die. We will bring justice for our brothers (who were killed), even if you will cut our necks we will bring you down, we will bring you down." Egypt plunged into renewed turmoil after Mursi issued his November 22 decree, and an Islamist-dominated assembly hastily approved a new constitution to go to next week's referendum. Mursi's opponents accuse him of seeking to create a new "dictatorship". The president defended his actions were necessary for Egypt's political transition.
