Forty Egyptian revolutionary parties and movements are planning to march on the defense ministry in Cairo’s Abbasiya district on Friday to demand the immediate handover of power from Egypt’s ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) to a civil authority.

Anti-SCAF activists also blame the military council for its failure to prevent last week’s deadly football violence in Port Said, which left more than 70 football fans dead and hundreds injured.

A total of ten different marches are slated to set out for the ministry after Friday prayers (around 1pm) from the following locations: Youssef Al-Sahabi Mosque in Hegaz Square; Rabaa Al-Adaweya Mosque in Nasr City; Matariya Square, Alf Maskan Square and Sheikh Mosque in Hadayek Al-Kobba; Cleopatra Church in Heliopolis; Al-Fath Mosque in Ramses Square; Al-Khazindar Mosque in Shubra; Orabi Bridge in Shubra Al-Kheima; and Al-Nedir Mosque in Al-Zawiya Al-Hamra.
