Students plan march to mark National Student Day

Students plan march to mark National Student Day | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Several student movements announced they will march from Cairo University to Abbas Bridge in Giza on Thursday to commemorate National Student Day, according to a statement Wednesday.

They are also demanding justice for those killed during the 25 January revolution, an end to military tribunals for civilians, the release of political detainees and free education.

The day marks national protests against the British after soldiers killed scores of students demonstrating on the Abbas Bridge by opening the moveable bridge and letting protesters drown on 9 February, 1946.

The movements said the British and former government are not the only ones responsible for killing students, adding that they are still victims of oppression and tyranny under the current administration.

Tortured labor: Egyptian textile workers to protest 'Brotherhoodisation', assaults

Tortured labor: Egyptian textile workers to protest 'Brotherhoodisation', assaults | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Workers at the state-owned Mahalla Misr Spinning and Weaving Company will march on Tuesday to protest the Muslim Brotherhood's failure to realise the revolution's demands.

The march will start at the company and head off to El-Shon Square in the industrial city of  Mahalla in the Nile Delta.

"The revolution's demands have not been met, neither have the workers' demands for justice and a minimum wage," labour activist Kamal El-Fayoumi tells Ahram Online.

El-Fayoumi adds that the workers object any form of "Brotherhoodisation" of the state, echoing the calls for the formation of a national salvation government to represent all Egyptians.

Tuesday's protests are also organised to denounce recent assaults targeting workers in the textile producing city known for their loud criticism to the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

El-Fayoumi claims that two of his colleagues at the textile company were assaulted by members of the Freedom and Justice Party (the Muslim Brotherhood's political arm) and were warned not to join anti-government rallies.

Egypt-actus's insight:

The Mahalla Misr Spinning and Weaving Company, which, as the largest textile manufacturer in Egypt, has some 24,000 employees, has seen a series in strikes within the last 18 months.
