Mass demonstrations on Friday in Egypt

The National Salvation Front of Egypt has announced a mass meeting and demonstration on Friday against the policies of the current authorities.

A march is to be held with the goal of the marchers being the residence of President Mohammed Morsi in Cairo.

Among the demands of the opposition: the resignation of the country's leadership, the abolition of the new constitution and the dissolution of the parliament's upper house.

The National Salvation Front issued a statement regarding the protest a few hours after the signing of a document called “non-Violence” at the Muslim University, Al-Azhar, by major political parties.

They are to be joined by leading Islamist movements including The Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafist party An-Nur.

Unrest across Egypt has not subsided since last Friday.

At least 60 people have been killed and hundreds have been injured in clashes.
