Egyptian activist Ossama Roushdi maintained that the Egyptian community in London wanted to express their solidarity with the Egyptian people in Egypt , adding "We want them to know that we stand by their side".
Related, activists in Cairo have resorted to the social networking site, Facebook also calling on people to participate in a protest scheduled to take place on Sunday at the Tahrir square.
