Egyptian Tagammu Party refuses to take part in Police Day protests

Egypt's opposition leftist Tagammu Party has refused to participate in a planned demonstration on 25 January to coincide with national "Police Day."
The demonstration is being organized by various opposition groups to protest alleged violations on the part of the Egyptian security services.
“It's inappropriate to stage protests on this day,” said Tagammu Party spokesman Nabil Zaki. “For on this day, in 1952, Egyptian police fought a heroic battle to defend the country against the British occupation.”
Zaki stressed, however, that all Egyptian citizens enjoyed the right to stage demonstrations in defense of their economic, social and political freedoms, which, he said, his party would always support.
