Public Transport Workers on Strike إضراب عمال النقل العام

Ali Fetouh, a leading independent trade unionist at the Cairo Public Transport Authority, whose role was central to their 2009 and February 2011 strikes, will show up on 7 May at a penal court at the State Council, accused of “agitating for strikes and publicly talking about the problems of workers in the media.”

And they tell you “Mission Accomplished” and Egypt’s workers are free now? Tell that to Ali Fetouh!
