Salaam ya masr

Today is the day of the planned minimum wage protest in Cairo. It’s supposed to begin at 1pm London time (3pm Cairo time).

You can follow developments here on Twitter.

Or here for some live streaming.

And here is a little background on the fight for a minimum living wage.

Posting will be limited today as I have an unholy amount of French lit to get through (and, because I’m a massive geek, I’ll be glued to Twitter) but insha’allah I’ll have something on the day’s events later.

Best of luck to everyone on the streets of Cairo today.
