The ‘Rebel’ campaign has collected 3 million signatures denouncing the presidency of Mohamed Morsi, Mai Wahba, a leading member of the campaign, stated on Sunday. 

'Rebel' is a grassroots movement to register opposition to President Morsi and force him to call early presidential elections by collecting 15 million signatures by 30 June.

The campaign, which launched its activities at the start of May, has been collecting signatures at home and abroad on a daily basis.

On Sunday, campaign members will be collecting signatures in several Cairo neighborhoods including Mattareya, Old Cairo, Hadayek El-Qubba and Manial.

The 6 April Youth Movement, which is part of the campaign, will be collecting signatures outside Faisal metro station in Giza at 1pm, in addition to a number of other governorates.

'Rebel' campaigners collected signatures at Friday's anti-Morsi 'Returning to the Square' protest.

Leading Muslim Brother Mohamed El-Beltagy on Friday dismissed the campaign as "illogical" and challenged the opposition to form a political party capable of challenging the government via the ballot box.
