The Rebel movement is working with other political groups to organise mass protests against President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood on 30 June, its coordinator Mahmoud Badr said on Wednesday.

Badr said the movement was also coordinating with other groups to launch 'Rebel Week' to collect more signatures stating people's opposition to the president.

The movement aims to collect 15 million signatures before the one-year anniversary of Mohamed Morsi's presidency on 30 June. It also wants him to call early presidential elections.

On Tuesday, the movement announced it would launch the 'Rebel Train' in Upper Egypt from Aswan to Beni Suef to collect more signatures.

Last week, the movement announced it had collected 7,540,535 signatures from 27 governorates so far.
