A coalition of opposition groups—including the suspended Labor Party, Kifaya, the banned Muslim Brotherhood, the unlicensed Karama (Dignity) Party, the unlicensed Centrist Party, the workers of Mahalla, the Lawyers’ Syndicate.
the Movement of University Professors, and others—is calling for a general strike on April 6, two days before the local council elections. The coalition is protesting a long list of grievances.
Including corruption, political detentions, poor education and health-care, a lack of jobs, and so forth. The full email I received yesterday is below the break.
