JERUSALEM – A group that is one of the main youth movements helping to organize the anti-government protests planned for Egypt this weekend participated in a 2008 U.S. State Department-sponsored training summit on how to use social media to organize societal change, WND has learned.

The keynote speakers at the summit were three architects of the online component of President Obama’s 2008 campaign. The Obama campaign’s use of social media for grassroots community organizing in 2008 was considered a watershed development in political fundraising and movement building.

The protests are slated to take place this Sunday under a campaign called Tamarod, which formed the United 30 June Front, a body that includes a number of youth movements and political parties.

The Tamarod group is calling for the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood from power and a transition period in which the chairman of the Supreme Constitutional Court would serve as acting president until new elections are held.

Mohamed Abdel Aziz, a founder of the Tamarod campaign, said: “Our vision is not a new revolution; our vision encompasses a bigger wave of the January Revolution.”

Tamarod leaders are calling for Egyptian citizens to take to the streets Sunday to demand Morsi’s departure.
