Activists have called for a series of demonstrations to take place in different areas and streets of Cairo objecting to the "failures" of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed forces (SCAF) in managing Egypt's transitional period after Mubarak's ouster.

The call, which was sent by a well-known political Facebook group, called the Second Revolution of Rage pointed to several problems, which it considers indicators of the failure of Egypt's interim rulers. Shortage of petroleum, shortage of natural gas, inflation and the spread of the Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) were amongst the many problems the group cited.

The Revolution group also objected to the fact that the parliament is unable to withdraw confidence from the current cabinet, despite to what it described as its apparent failure. The call further stated that the purpose of the rallies was to raise awareness about what is behind these failures and to explain the current struggle going on between the different ruling authorities leading to the current crisis.

The first march is expected to take place later on Saturday at 6:00pm in Giza's Bulaq district. 

Meanwhile, hundreds of Ultras football fans continue to stage an open ended sit-in at the parliament in downtown Cairo demanding justice for the martyrs of the revolution as well as the victims of the Port Said stadium massacre.
