National Salvation Front (NSF) youth members together with other political coalitions called Wednesday for fresh rallies Friday under the banner "Toppling the regime."

At a press conference held at the Wafd Party headquarters, youth members of the front called for mass demonstrations to take place in Egypt's squares.

The groups also announced they will form a legal committee to trace the killers of the revolution's youth. The committee is also to follow up on all cases related to the January 25 Revolution including those related to the detained, missing and tortured during the presidential palace demonstrations.

Last Friday's demonstrations at the presidential palace turned violent after demonstrators threw Molotov cocktails at the presidential headquarters and police responded firing tear gas and rubber bullets.

Many were detained during Friday's violent events. Two died during the clashes including Amr Saad, a member of the Popular current who succumbed to injuries from a live bullet.

On Monday, another member of the Popular Current, Mohamed El-Gendy, died from torture allegedly inflicted in police detention last week.

Other political groups present at the press conference included the Kefaya movement, the Maspero Youth Coalition and the National Association for Change.

Several political groups from Alexandria and Suez have also called for mass marches to take place Friday, including the Suez Revolutionary Bloc and the Alexandria Youth Coalition.

Not that simple.
We all agree to voting them out, and trust me they will be voted out. But..the regime are the ones destroying Egypt. When the elected President Morsi, breached every oath and gave himself sweeping powers, mandated an unwelcome constitution!

No more toppling the regime. Save Egypt and the Revolution Spirit
Please do not destroy the spirit of the great Revolution in a bud. Let your country grows well so can stand on its own feet. Everybody needs to work together for a better future. Don't look at the back or get any whispering from the opportunists. They are merely using the innocents for their own narrow interests. Hope the great Egyptian people will realize it sooner.

Time to arrest people calling to topple the government
The government is elected democratically. time to work and vote and participate. Protesting and violence without voting and discussion leads to pain for everyone.

Millions would take to the streets to protect the revolution
Trying to topple a democratically elected regime amounts to treason. In a democracy, the regime can only be toppled through the ballot box. But the opposition seems to have little support amongst the people. If need be, the Egyptian army and people will protect the revolution from the agents of Israel and Iran.

Egyptians are really STUPID.......
Instead of getting together and building and good, prosperous and powerful Egypt they march, march and march to destroy Egypt. Zionist Israel must be very happy. Follow the example of South Africa.

Does no one have any influence over these Youth group?
So another round of demonstrations called for Friday and guess what? Another group of Mothers who will wake up on Saturday minus their children. Does no one have any influence on these kids and explain to them that democracy sometimes means accepting certain realities and that they should work peacefully to hange things rather thn plying into the hands of the regime by using Molotov cocktail, bricks and other assorted weapons...who will eventually be man enough to lead this Nation out of the depths of despair...?
