 The Day of Rage protest scheduled for today, January 25th, has been dubbed a day of revolution as Egypt's ruling regime is preparing itself for one of the biggest opposition demonstrations where thousands of protesters prepare to take to the streets demanding political reform.

Youth activists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, industrial workers and hardcore football fans known as the Ultras are ready to take part in the nationwide "day of rage" scheduled to coincide with the national Police Day holiday.
The celebration is ironic as it is expected to commend police efforts despite public sentiment against state security forces at an unprecedented level, following an increasing number of high-profile police brutality cases and the torture of anti-government activists.

Egyptians from all walks of life will be uniting in solidarity in a concerted effort to force concessions from an escalating number of the notorious ruling elite.

In turn, Tunisian activists have confirmed they will hold their own demonstrations supporting their Egyptian counterparts. Furthermore, expatriate Egyptians have asserted they will hold parallel protests outside  Egyptian embassies in London and Washington.

Demands by demonstrators include the ousting of the country's interior minister, Habib El Adly, the elimination of the 3-decade-old Emergency Law, which breaches basic civil liberties, and a term limit on the presidency which would ultimately bring to an end the 30-year rule of President Hosni Mubarak, described as one of the Middle East's most deep-rooted dictators.

According to state security personnel, the protests are illegal, and warnings have been issued stating that those who take part will be dealt with "severely". The country's strongest opposition, the Muslim Brotherhood, have in fact been threatened as leaders of the group's administrative office have been summoned and warned by security officials that members of their group will be arrested if they choose to take to the streets. The group has maintained, however, that they refuse to be threatened and have encouraged their members to participate and to spread the word on the group's 10 demands which have been agreed- upon by other opposition factions.

Members of Egypt's traditional opposition parties and prominent public figures have also pledged support and workers in several governorates including Mahalla are expected to join the march.
