The Second Revolution of Rage group has announced organising a march Thursday in preparation for Friday's mass protest dubbed "Self-Determination Friday."

The movement's organisers said that their main aim is "creating a new revolution and demanding the martyrs' rights," adding that they will not announce where the march is going take place exactly, explaining that it will be "a surprise to be announced at the right time."

Organisers added that protestors will gather for the march in Talaat Harb Street in downtown Cairo at 5pm, so that the march begins on time at 6pm.

The 6 April Youth Movement has called for mass demonstrations on Friday, 20 April. The youth group released a statement Tuesday calling on Egyptians to retake Tahrir Square to revive the revolution.

Many political powers responded to the call by announcing their participation.
