Opposition groups will hold two marches in Cairo on Friday to condemn the "failures of President Mohamed Morsi and the ruling Muslim Brotherhood."
A march will begin at Virgin Mary Church in Cairo’s working class district of Imbaba at 5pm and finish at Imbaba court.
During the march, the grassroots Rebel Movement will be collecting signatures calling for the withdrawal of confidence in President Mohamed Morsi, who hails from the Muslim Brotherhood, and for early presidential elections to be held.
According to a statement published by the Free Front for Peaceful Change (FFPC), a revolutionary youth coalition and one of the main organisers of the march, the rally will also protest rising prices, deteriorating economic and social conditions, the lack of security and the targeting and arresting of activists.
Egyptian Popular Current, Constitution Party and April 6 – Democratic Front have endorsed the protest.
Meanwhile, the FFPC has called for another protest at 6:30pm in Al-Alf Maskan Square in Cairo’s upscale Heliopolis district in coordination with the Constitution Party, Socialist Popular Alliance and Egyptian Social Democratic Party.
The protest will also "condemn the performance of President Mohamed Morsi and his economic policies."
