Inside Story – Egyptian protests – 6 Apr 08

Here is part 1 of a television report put out by Inside Story in part with Al Jazeera English.  The report  asks if the workers’ strike in Egypt in 2008 was a success and what was to be expected of the country’s opposition and ruling party as tension mounted.  The strike was a result of poor pay, rising food costs, and the high poverty rate in the country.  The government claims that it was doing best to combat the global economic crisis, yet, many of the people interviewed say they feel that they are not represented by the government at all.  This video provides wonderful coverage of this post protest atmosphere in 2008 and it may prove useful evidence for the final paper.
