Free Egyptians Party to hold protest against Clinton visit

The Free Egyptians Party will hold a protest against Saturday's visit of the US Secretary of State

Ahram Online, Saturday 14 Jul 2012

The liberal Free Egyptians Party will stage a protest Saturday afternoon against the visit of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The protest will be held at 5pm in front of the US embassy in Cairo.

The party called for all of Egypt's political forces to join the protest to reject US interference in Egypt's internal affairs.

The Free Egyptians Party was founded by prominent Coptic-Christian business tycoon Naguib Sawiris after the 25 January Revolution. The party's main objective is to promote the economic and social development of Egypt. It ran under the umbrella of the liberal Egyptian Bloc during the 2011 parliamentary elections, winning 15 seats in Egypt's parliament.

Clinton is slated to make her first visit to Egypt since the inauguration of Egypt's first post-revolution president Mohamed Morsi. She is expected to arrive Saturday morning.
