On the one-year anniversary of the April 6 protests “Egyptian police were out in force to deal with a nationwide protest called by pro-democracy groups, arresting Islamists and containing small demonstrations in the capital.” The Muslim Brotherhood endorsed the protest, calling on people to “express their anger and objection to the policies of the regime which has squandered the country’s riches, neglected its national security and removed Egypt from its role as leader an pioneer.” And it was reported that yesterday police arrested Abdel Rahman Fares, a 25 year-old blogger, for handing out flyers calling for the protests on Monday.

The Arabist provides a comprehensive round-up of sources related to the April 6 movement - I highly recommend checking it out.
