Muslim Brotherhood to march, protest on January 25 revolution anniversary
As the third anniversary of Egypt’s 2011 revolution nears, Egypt’s al-Watan newspaper daily published the Muslim Brotherhood's plans to mark the day.
The plan dubbed "liberating, enabling and maintaining popular will" was drawn up on Nov. 24 and will be implemented on Jan. 4, ahead of the Jan. 25 anniversary of the uprising which led to the ouster of former President Hosni Mubarak.
Marches will be organized across Egypt and will be held under the slogan "the free Egyptian will, defeating the coup and the return of legitimacy," associated with the return of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi who was ousted by the military in July.
Marches will also be organized on Jan. 20 as Morsi supporters plan to protest in prominent areas of Egyptian cities, including Tahrir Square and Rabaa al-Adawiya square in Cairo.
