Police ban another pro-Gaza demo

It seems the demo that some bloggers tried to hold Friday in front of the Israeli embassy in Giza, never materialized.
The blogger who issued the initial call for the demo, Asad, wrote an account of what happened. It’s in Arabic, so to cut a long story short: some people showed up, but did not dare to start a demo due to the massive security presence. Asad reports there were thousands of CSF troops and State Security agents, who banned anyone from assembling or approaching the Nahdet Masr statue, that was announced to be the meeting point. The Friday ban comes after police agents banned a demo in solidarity with Gaza last Wednesday.
