The Egyptian security forces arrested dozens of activists in Cairo, Giza, and other governorates, coinciding with calls for a peaceful demonstration on November 11.
Dozens of others were summoned by the National Security to be questioned over the demonstration, and whether they would participate in them or not.
The Egyptian security deployed security ambushes in Cairo and carried out random arrests among Egyptian youths.
The arrests included a number of political detainees who had previously been released, in addition to the relatives of some Egyptian dissidents abroad.
These security measure coincide with the spread of calls to demonstrate against the high prices of goods and the increasing poverty in the country.
Since 2013, the Egyptian authorities have arrested thousands of people in politically motivated arrests, many of whom have been convicted, sentenced in unfair trials, or held without trial for years on baseless terrorism-related charges, and detained in extremely poor detention conditions.
