April 6 Youth Movement has condemned a police raid on its offices in Cairo's Zeitoun district on Tuesday.

The group said police confiscated identification cards from its personnel who were preparing an educational project for local residents, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

The raid was made without a warrant, April 6 added, therefore it will submit a complaint with the attorney general against Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim.

On 4 September, Egypt's attorney general instructed the Supreme State Security Prosecution to investigate complaints against April 6 co-founder Ahmed Maher.

Abdel-Aziz Fahmi, general manager of the youth and sports sector in Gharbiya, accused Maher of conspiring against Egypt and acquiring illegal financial support from abroad.

Fahmi asked prosecutors to order the seizure of April 6's offices and headquarters while its finances are investigated.

April 6, which helped spearhead the January 25 Revolution, has been under fierce attack in the media for allegedly supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and conspiring against Egypt.

The former accusation was first made during the last years of the Mubarak era then continued during the rule of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces and Mohammed Morsi.

Egyptians have made a mistake
i have not ceased to be amazed at the naievity of egyptians. they are actually shooting themselves in the foot. they have lost their last chance at having democracy, and have by their own hands chosen to have mubaraks system, or worse, back again? A government that shuts down stations of opponenets, jams tv signals of tvs that do not tow the line, kills hundreds of protesters, and has extendedd the state of emergency is being given a chance by the egyptians. Worse, a group of handpicked election-losers are meeting clandestinely to change a constitution ratified by two thirds of the voting population. meanwhile, we have an absolutely one sided media that has only praises for the governmnet and no criticism. Well, Egyptians have proven they do not deserve good leaders-I wish them the extreme of what they have wished for themselves.

No, Sheriff, the vast majority BOYCOTTED the December referendum voting
"2/3 of the voting population voted" for the 2012 referendum? What nonsense. In fact only 30% of registered voters voted and of those, 64% voted yes, which means that 19% of registered voters -- fewer than 1/5 -- voted yes. The reason that a) a majority of voters DID NOT VOTE and that b) a minority of those who voted voted no was that up until a few days before the vote, El Baradei and other self-promoted spokesmen of the mass anti-referendum sentiment had gone along with the people's desire to boycott. Then, Wednesday or Thursday before the first vote (which was on Saturday) they switched to "Vote no," which effectvely sabatoged the opposition, leading to a majority boycotting, and a much smaller number voting no, thus allowing the bBrotherhood -- which was also widely accused of election tampering -- falsely claiming that a 2/3 majority had voted yes, when in fact 70% had stuck with the boycott. -- Samantha Criscione

Frying in their own fat
The April 6 movement is only slowly discovering what an epic mistake supporting the July 2nd counterrevolution was.

No use complaining April 6
This is what April 6 and other partys protested for continuously for 1 year until they kicked democracy out of Egypt and got a brutal, repressive, tyrannical and thuggish police state in its place. So why complain now, enjoy the fruits of your protests. Fasten your seatbelts, things are about to get much worse, mubarak will seem like an angel compared to what's happening and will happen. ENJOY!!!
