FREE Israa Abdel Fatah

"A number of youths participating on the well known site 'Face Book' called for a new strike on the 4th of May which coincides with the birthday of President Mubarak. The organizers of the strike declared that they chose this day in particular to 'celebrate the birthday of the President'.

The protesters issued a statement that was circulated over more than one group calling for the 4th of May strike, in which they declared that they will organize a new strike, and they will grant the government a grace period of 28 days to carry out their demands: to provide a minimum limit for wages for all positions, conduct investigation to stop price rising, prevent monopoly, and release all detainees, on top of them is Israa Abdel Fatah.

It is noted that the protestors directed their call to the youths in particular, as the statement mentioned a clear and express idea to youths to be available intensively at the announced places of strike. They are the hope for change, not the political parties, as the statement indicated." Read More at AlMasry AlYoum.
