A group of protesters have organized a Facebook event calling on activists to perform the provocative viral dance, the “Harlem Shake,” in front of the Muslim Brotherhood's headquarters in Moqattam, Egypt, next Thursday.
“We’re creating a new group called Satiric Revolutionary Struggle that aims to send clear messages to the Muslim Brotherhood through satire,” activist and Modern Academy student Farid Sayed said, according to Egypt Daily News.
“It is not guaranteed to be peaceful. These matters always lead to violence which is unacceptable,” Mr. Ghozlan commented.
Four students were arrested in Cairo on Saturday for preforming the pelvis-thrusting dance in their underwear. They were accused of committing “a scandalous act,” an official said.
