386) STRIKE AGAINST PRICES!!

TODAY is the 6th of APRIL where it will be a historical day or just like any other day depends on how focused and civilized people will react. I am still AGAINST not going to work, but I am FOR AND CALLING FOR BOYCOTTING BUYING ANY GOODS TODAY EVEN FOOD.

Here are some quick feedback so far:

A call for a general strike on Sunday has been circulating for more than a week on the Internet, via text messages and on the social networking site Facebook.

Egypt's government warned Saturday it will take firm action against anyone protesting or striking, in response to snowballing calls for a general strike the following day. The interior ministry threatened "immediate and firm measures against any attempt to demonstrate, disrupt road traffic or the running of public establishments and against all attempts to incite such acts".

The government has been scrambling to avert more unrest after being hit by an unprecedented wave of strikes and protests even from its own employees over soaring inflation and low pay.
The UN's World Food Programme said this month that average household expenditure in Egypt had risen by 50 percent since the start of the year.


International organisations in Cairo, including the United Nations, the French embassy and the American University in Cairo have issued warnings to staff to avoid the city centre on Sunday afternoon where a protest is planned and security is expected to be heavy.

Sky-rocketing food prices in Egypt since the start of the year have been matched in recent weeks by a rumbling wave of popular discontent and unprecedented strikes and demonstrations.

The funny thing is that Al-Ahram has posted that kolo tamam in its first edition last night even before the strike!!!!
