The backlash begins

I've just received this SMS:

Protesting against police brutality, Egypt will wear BLACK on the 1st of June. Tell your friends.


More of this type of reaction will come, I'm sure.

Update: As pointed out in the comments, this will centered around a demo at 1pm at the Journalists' Syndicate in Downtown Cairo.
