Activists and members of numerous trends and movements including the Kefaya, and April 6 movement will rally expressing their condemnation of police violence on Monday, during a protest held to coincide with National Police Day.

The protest was initiated by the diverse coalition of organizations and individuals to express their anger at brutality directed at citizens and in particular journalists who are attacked because of their work and publicizing of corruption.

In a statement to "Ikhwanweb" Karima Alhefnawy a leader from the Kefaya Movement stated  "We came together out of our concern that the peoples, and journalists resistance to police brutality needed to be taken to a higher level nationwide. This Protest aims to bring forward a powerful, visible, national protest against police brutality and the criminalization of a generation. It aims to expose the state's repressive program bringing forward those most directly under the gun of Police Brutality AND to reach into all parts of the society--bringing forward others to stand in the fight against this official brutality. By this we aim to strengthen the peoples' organized capacity for resistance in a variety of ways".

A number of renowned journalists, members of parliament, and highly ranked individuals are expected to attend the rally.
