A new wave of strikes and protests have hit Egypt.

The renewed strikes and protests "reflect growing hostility" to "the reactionary policies" of the "US-backed" junta with its Islamist figurehead, President Mohamed Mursi.
Mursi aims "to further privatize the Egyptian economy" and "cut subsidies".

Members of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom Justice Party reportedly tried to convince workers in Mahalla to end their strike, but were chased away.
The Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm published a video of the striking Mahalla workers.
In the video, a female worker says of Mursi: "The first thing he does when he gets his hands on the presidency is to forget about us.
"He’s only thinking about those earning 200,000 or half a million.
"He doesn’t think about the workers who are sweating blood. Where are our rights? We can’t even afford a crust of bread. Where is our president now?"
A male colleague says: "The revolution didn’t bring anything to the workers of Misr Spinning in Mahalla.
"Back in 2006, we were getting profit-sharing bonuses of four and a half months...
"How can they bring in someone like Fouad Abd-al-Alim (the new head of the public sector Holding Company for Textiles and Garment Production)? He was the most corrupt one here. He destroyed the factory in Mahalla and is destroying the rest of the public textile factories..."
