CAIRO: Over 200 workers at the Egyptian National Circus staged a four-hour protest on Sunday, demanding an increase in their salaries and accusing the Ministry of Culture of neglecting the circus.
The workers protested from 1 pm to 5 pm in Agouza. They also expressed concern over the Ministry of Culture’s intention to privatize the circus.
The protestors demanded that their salaries be equal to those who work at national theaters. The Ministry of Culture doesn’t want to comment on the issue, Ahmed Salah, media spokesperson, told Daily News Egypt.
The protestors, on the other hand, vowed to stage another protest this Sunday if their demands were not met.
