The Suez Canal Authority's workers have joined the sit-in at Arbaeen Square in Suez in solidarity with the families of the martyrs of the Egyptian Revolution. Hundreds of workers staged a march from the company's headquarters to the square where the families are. 

A convey of Cairo activists has also reached the city and will join the sit-in. ‎In comparison to the past three days, the city is stable with no reported clashes between protesters and security forces. 

The families of martyrs are currently holding a sit-in in opposition to a court order issued earlier this week to release officers accused of killing protesters in the city. The families of martyrs cut the Suez-Cairo highway before heading to Arbaeen Square.

The public prosecutor decided to appeal the court order, but his appeal was refused yesterday by the court.
