24 hours before the 25th !!

It is 24 hours before January 25th and there is a lot of anticipation online and offline on what is going on that day.
First of all I am not sure whether officially the Muslim brotherhood is going to participate in the protest or not because there is talk that the brotherhood are allowed to participate individually !!?
Second it seems that surprisingly the Wafd party is going to participate in the protest or at least the youth of the Wafd party.
Now there is something I fear , the government is asking the shops to close on January 25 because of the riots that will place , this photo was taken from Heliopolis at some Gym.
The sign speaks 
I fear that the government wants the protest turns in to riots to justify the use of violence against the protesters. The NDP promised already to launch a counter protest , a pro-Mubarak protest where it will distribute thousands of pro-Mubarak shirts !!!!!!!!!!  I do not have any doubt that the NDP supporters will be rented thugs.

Now more public personalities declare that they are going to participate in the day like author Alaa Al-Aswany , Balal Fadel , actor Khaled Abu Naga and actor Amr Waked who wrote a Facebook note to encourage the youth to protest on that day.
There is not unconfirmed news that the Egyptian Ultras of Al Ahly and Zamalak are going to participate in the protest, of course this will be a major development considering their number.
The Khaled Said group has published “What you need to know about the 25th” document in Arabic answering the questions of what , when , why , how …etc. Famous Brazilian cartoonist Carlos Latuff cartoonist made a collection of cartoons in solidarity with Egyptians and the #Jan25.

Newsweek wondered if the #Jan25 will make Egypt follow Tunisia
The wonderful Egyptian community in New York held a protest yesterday in front of the UN despite the cold weather , they will hold another one tomorrow insh Allah. Here is a photo album from Mona Eltahawy.
