Nasserist and leftist forces celebrate on Monday the 60th anniversary of the 1952 Revolution (also known as the Free Officers Coup D'état) in Tahrir.
The celebration will begin with participants breaking their fast and performing prayer led by Imam Mazhar Shahin, said Mohamed Abdelghany, member of the organizing committee.
An organized visit to the tomb of late Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser, where the president and military council were invited, took place in the morning, Abdelghany added.
Joining the celebration are Abdel Hakeem Abdel Nasser, former presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabahi, prominent poets Sayed Hegab and Gamal Bekheet and many artists including Iman al-Bahr Darweesh, Aziz al-Shafei and Ahmed Ismail.
A youth group named Baheya formed during December's cabinet clashes will also play revolutionary music by Sheikh Imam and Sayed Darweesh.
Symbols of the January 25 revolution, who recognize the connection between the two turning points, will attend the celebration. The independent farmers union and the independent labor union have also announced their intention to participate in the celebration.
The celebration will start off with a documentary displaying the achievements of the 1952 Revolution created by Hoda Abdel Nasser, titled "Only God knows about the sixties", to respond to a remark made by President Mohamed Mursi during his first speech as president in reference to the oppression that the Muslim Brotherhood faced during the period.
