Sufis, Copts, Liberals Plan Big Rally for Secular State on Friday

Seeking to counter the big Islamist rally a week ago last Friday, egypt's influential but formerly political quiescent Sufi orders are planning a big rally Friday in favor of  secular state. Subsequently they've been joined by Copts and liberal parties and most recently by the April 6 Movement. They're calling it a Million Man march (as usual), and it will be held in Tahrir Square (where else?).
