On the 1st Feb 2012 over 74 fans were killed in a football match at Port Said Egypt. The Ultras believe the ruling military government (SCAF) were behind the incident. They have little formal organisation and remain vocal and visible but highly secretive. In April 2012 they held demonstrations and occupied the street outside the Parliament for 3 weeks. At this ramshackle camp they set up tents and held regular demonstrations to put pressure on the newly elected MPs to take action. Eventually the camp was taken down as quickly as it was set up and the Ultras returned to normal life.
