The Anti-Coup, Pro-Legitimacy National Alliance called all Egyptians to join a week-long protest campaign under the slogan 'The People Lead the Revolution', affirming that arrest of its leaders will not discourage the Alliance "but increase its determination to stand for its demands."

A statement issued by the coalition late on Friday said: "The Alliance deeply appreciates and values ​​the historical role of the Egyptian people who dazzled the whole world, and proved they are free and patriotic people who defend their will in every legitimate peaceful way available, despite all the arbitrary arrest operations, the killings, the brutal massacres and merciless genocide committed by the military against pro-legitimacy, pro-democracy opponents of the military coup and putschists who are doing their worst to dissuade people from demanding their freedom and their free will.

"The masses of Egyptian people revolted on Friday (August 23) in activities of Martyrs’ Friday. Millions of Egyptians of all ages and political colors poured onto the streets after Friday prayers. All the streets of Egypt witnessed their unprecedented huge marches rallying in all cities and neighborhoods, villages and hamlets."

The statement noted that the forms of protests "varied in creative new ways – marches and vigils, human chains and rallies on scooters, in addition to a new pot-clanking campaign at nine in the evening – to break the curfew".

The Alliance also called on "the masses of the Egyptian people to demonstrate peacefully throughout the this week, under the slogan ‘The People Leading The Revolution’".

The coalition stressed that the arrest of its leaders "will not defeat it, but increase its determination and resolve to realize all its demands in its commitment to legitimacy, rejection of the coup, and its demand for real trials of the killers of revolutionaries.

"The National Alliance also appreciates the efforts made by Egyptians abroad and by the whole world’s free peoples. The most important of Friday’s events was the march which ended with a protest vigil and a public rally in Brussels outside the European Parliament."
