Egyptian security forces around Cairo's presidential palace have been reinforced in preparation for the demonstrations.

 

Al-Jazeera reported that protesters will begin marching towards the square after Friday prayers, and that similar marches will be held in Alexandria and Suez.

 

It was also reported that the Muslim Brotherhood has organized several gatherings of its own to mark the revolution.  

 

On Thursday, Egyptian opposition leaders called for mass demonstrations against Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, quoting the 2011 revolution slogan: "Bread, liberty, social justice."

 

Clashes were recorded as early as Thursday night. The health ministry spokesman stated that 16 protestors were injured early morning Friday in Tahrir Square, were security forces were deployed in anticipation of the riots.
