A call that first came from the Khaled Saeed Facebook page requested that Egyptians take the streets on Police Day, 25 January, to protest police violence.

Khaled Saeed was allegedly tortured to death at the hands of two Egyptian policemen. Subsequently, youth mobilised over the Internet condemning police violence.

Several opposition groups have responded by expanding the day of action beyond ending police violence.

Opposition groups have decided that 25 January will be a long day of demonstrations demanding greater freedom, justice and citizenship rights.

Groups taking part include Kifaya, the National Association for Change, Hashd, Karama, the 6th of April Youth, the Revolutionary Socialists, Egyptian Women for Change, and Youth for Justice and Freedom.
