Twitter and Facebook contributed greatly to the Tunisian revolution that granted its people their freedom. A large number of activists on Facebook are calling for a national strike in front of the Egyptian Presidential Palace on January 25.

About 17,000 people on Facebook have expressed their intention to participate and no one has yet claimed responsibility for the strike which is expected to occur within days after the success of the Tunisian uprising amid uncertainty surrounding the incident.
 
The group paid special tribute to the Tunisian people, calling for a similar strike to liberate Egypt from oppressors and corrupters, hoping that it erupts in all parts of Egypt.
 
The "We Are all Khaled Said" Facebook group stated that a 28-year-old man from Alexandria was beaten to death by two policemen, and called for a silent vigil on Sunday, July 25 on the anniversary of the July 1952 revolution against torture, poverty, corruption and unemployment.
 
The Facebook group said that Egypt is not less than Tunisia, demanding the trial of those who murdered Sayed Bilal and Khalid Saeed as well as any police officers who are involved in torture cases. They also called for ending the Emergency Law, the alteration of the penalty on police officers, putting an end to repression and corruption and demanding the Egyptian people to prove to the world that they are brave.
