Fighting against repression: The labour movement

The downfall of Hosni Mubarak’s was realised in part thanks to Egypt’s labour movement. Despite this pivotal role, under the new regime, the status of workers has not changed much due because of political and economic forces. The new regime seems to be following Mubarak’s footsteps in handling the workers’ activism through security repression and unfair laws. The labour movement is being challenged daily; however workers are refusing to give up.
