Brotherhood youth called for demonstrations on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, titled “Assessment Week” of the first 100 days of the mandate of interim President Adly Mansour.
The group printed leaflets to distribute on Friday, which lists the problems with Egypt under the interim government. The list includes what it deems a return of the police state and the state of emergency, the military trials, the deteriorating economic conditions, the arresting of women and children, as well as the killing of thousands of people.
The group called for a sit-in in Tahrir Square on Friday, adding that it has another plan to march to the square that would avoid clashes with the people who prevented them from reaching there last Sunday.
The group is also meeting with other Islamist groups to mobilize a large number of demonstrators.
Mohamed Hassan, spokesperson for the Jamaa Islamiya, said his group is joining the demonstrations in Tahrir, Giza and Ain Shams.
“The police must protect us,” he said. “Tahrir is not reserved for any certain faction. We all have the right to express ourselves.”
