Strikers join Egypt revolution

Tens of thousands of Egyptian employees have left workplaces to protest insufficient payment and join the popular revolution against the regime of President Hosni Mubarak.

On Thursday, strikes were reported in the capital of Cairo, cities on the north coast, including Alexandria, the northeastern seaport town of Suez as well as the Red Sea coast in the east.

The uprising, which is in its 17th straight day, has been fiercely confronted by Egyptian security forces. More than 300 people have lost their lives since the popular movements began, reports say.

“We have started to hear of the billions of dollars that officials hold in personal accounts,” said unionist Kamal Abbas.

“So many employees feel it is time to stand up and demand their rights.”

British paper The Guardian reported earlier in the month that, according to Middle East experts, Mubarak has stored much wealth in secret bank accounts in British and Swiss banks.

He could have amassed as much as USD 70 billion during decades as a top official.

Clashes hit Cairo as curfew expands

Strikes

Clashes have already started in Tahra Palace in Cairo where lawyers on strike clashed with security forces, who had to back down. The protesters have allegedly tried to enter the premises but did not persist given the prospects of an intervention by the army.

The Arab Doctors Union which has set up half a dozen clinics in Liberation Square had 5,000 members marching on Thursday in a political protest.

The rallies are also joined by large number of other labor sections, including transportation employees.

Meanwhile, protesters in the Egyptian city of Assiut blocked a railway line and burned tires to cut off a vital motorway linking the north and the south.

A recent 15-percent pay rise announced by the government to appease protesters failed to send demonstrators back home, as complaints against low living standards are giving their place to a growing anti-Mubarak, pro-democracy sentiment.

Further clashes may breakout on Friday when a greater protester turnout is expected. The demonstrators reportedly plan to take to six major squares in Cairo before converging in Liberation Square.

According to UN estimates, more than 300 people have been killed and hundreds more wounded the since the breakout of protests against the Mubarak regime late last month.PressTV
