Warnings of 'infiltrators' during Tuesday demonstrations

Post by DJKeefy »

Interior Ministry warns of 'infiltrators' during Tuesday demonstrations.

“Infiltrators” may try to penetrate protests Tuesday, the Interior Ministry warned in a statement Monday.

A security source said in the statement that the police would protect state institutions and public and private property in accordance with the provisions of the constitution and the law.

The source pledged that security forces would not approach the demonstrators as long as they protest peacefully.

Several marches will start at different parts in Cairo Tuesday afternoon and are expected to converge at the presidential palace at Heliopolis to protest the final draft of the new constitution, which is widely criticized over human rights issues, the electoral system and the absence of protections for women’s rights.

Jama’a al-Islamiya and its Construction and Development Party have warned the political forces calling for the “Last Warning” demonstration of using the event to spread chaos and “thuggery.”

In a statement on Monday, the party alleged that, “Someone is trying to exploit these demonstrations to spread chaos, assault government institutions and clash with the Republican Guard in an attempt to overthrow President Mohamed Morsy and reinstate the former regime.”

The statement called on “citizens who support legitimacy” to form popular committees to support the police in protecting public and private property.

They also called on the Coptic Church to keep the demonstration peaceful, as Coptic groups have announced their participation. Liberal and secular political parties, journalists and trade union members are also expected to take part in the demonstration.

"They also called on the Coptic Church to keep the demonstration peaceful"

I suppose that they're well known for starting trouble with people who outnumber them by 10 to 1!
