Transcript of "Egypt - Movement is Growing-2011 February 9"

  1. 2. EGYPT PROTEST : WEEK 3 :Labour unions boost Egypt protests Protesters are determined by the day, movement is growing CAIRO – Thousands of state workers and impoverished Egyptians went on strike Wednesday after weeks of anti-government protests cast a spotlight on corruption and the wealth amassed by those in power in a country where almost half the people live near the poverty line. The protests calling for President Hosni Mubarak's ouster have been spreading since Tuesday outside of Cairo's Tahrir Square, where they have been concentrated for the past week. On Wednesday, demonstrators also gathered at parliament, the Cabinet and the Health Ministry buildings, all a few blocks from the square. Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq was working out of the Civil Aviation Ministry on the other side of the city because his office was blocked by protesters. For the first time, protesters were forcefully urging labor strikes despite a warning by Vice President Omar Suleiman that calls for civil disobedience are "very dangerous for society and we can't put up with this at all." His warnings Tuesday were taken by protesters as a thinly veiled threat of another crackdown. Strikes erupted in a breadth of sectors — among railway and bus workers, state electricity staff and service technicians at the Suez Canal, in factories manufacturing textiles, steel and beverages and at least one hospital. "They were motivated to strike when they heard about how many billions the Mubarak family was worth," said Kamal Abbas, a labor leader. "They said: 'How much longer should we be silent?'" Egyptians have been infuriated by newspaper reports that the Mubarak family has amassed billions, and perhaps tens of billions of dollars in wealth while, according to the World Bank, about 40 percent of the country's 80 million people live below or near the poverty line of $2 a day. The family's true net worth is not known. "O Mubarak, tell us where you get $70 billion dollars," dozens of protesters chanted in front of the Health Ministry. Protesters with blankets gathered outside the parliament building in Cairo on Wednesday, with no plan to move, our correspondent reported. The demonstrators have put up a sign that reads: "Closed until the fall of the regime". The government seems to be scrambling under pressure from major powers and pro-democracy supporters Source : aljazeera

In an indication of state employee unrest, the museum workers demanded higher wages and criticized the practices of former Minister of Culture Farouq Hosni, and argued with Antiquities Chief Zahi Hawass who came out to address them. Posters in Arabic read "No to corruption, no to oppression, Farouq Abdel-Salam", "Steadfastness, steadfastness" and "Increasing pay". - Ben Curtis / AP
  5. 7. Anti-government protesters sit in front of tanks to prevent them from moving at the protest site opposite the Egyptian Museum near Tahrir Square on Sunday. Egypt's vice president met a broad representation of major opposition groups for the first time Sunday and agreed to allow freedom of the press and to release those detained since anti-government protests began, though Al-Jazeera's English-language news network said one of its correspondents had been detained the same day by the Egyptian military.

  110. 113. Ben Curtis / AP - Anti-government protesters have their hair cut by hairdressers volunteering their services at the continuing protest in Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo, Egypt, Feb. 7. Egypt's embattled regime announced Monday a 15 percent raise for government employees in an attempt to shore up its base and defuse popular anger but the gestures so far have done little to persuade the tens of thousands of protesters occupying Tahrir Square to end their two-week long protest, leaving the two sides in an uneasy stalemate.

  123. 126. Egyptian blogger Hossam el-Hamalawy has recently quit his job as a journalist and is participating in the anti-government protests full time. Hossam el-Hamalawy says while some protesters are maintaining their vigil in the square full time, others are making time in Tahrir Square a steady, but not constant part of their lives, coming and going around other obligations like work and family. He says there is a steady stream of supplies. When people join the protest they bring medical supplies, food and water to share, as seen in the photo above.

  124. 127. Hossam el-Hamalawy PHOTO - el-Hamalawy says the protesters' camp is becoming more sophisticated, adding tarps and tents to rest under and tapping into electrical wires to recharge their mobile phones. They have entertainment to pass the time and keep morale high.
  125. 128. Hossam el-Hamalawy PHOTO - He said while it's hard to know what's next as there’s no single protest leader to unify the movement, the next step is to hit the country's leaders financially by calling for a general strike. Imagine the effect of stopping shipping in the Suez Canal. The challenge is that workers’ unions were made illegal in Egypt decades ago, so there is little centralization to organize that kind of effort.
