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.
“The event is in front of the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters because we know their office is ruling the country”, Mr. Sayed added.
Muslim Brotherhood spokesperson Mahmoud Ghozlan told the Daily News that while peaceful demonstrations are welcomed, any violence will be quashed and protesters will be arrested.
“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.
