Demo at Egypt presidential palace for detained protesters
A protest will take place Sunday at 5pm in front of the presidential palace in Cairo’s Heliopolis, in solidarity with members of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party who were arrested on Thursday.
Islam Amin, Karim El-Kanani and Mohamed Massoud were arrested by military police in Nasr City whilst protesting against military trials for civilians and raising awareness about Egypt's constitution.
The men are accused of attacking the private residence of General Hamdy Badeen, a member of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. The party has condemned the accusations as a "fabrication."
The protesters will be urging the president to demand the three men’s release, as well as the release of all civilians facing military trials.
President Mohamed Morsi recently formed a committee to review the status of all protesters arrested and detained by the military after the 25 January uprising, which has exceeded 12,000 people.
