Hossam is posting frequent updates regarding a huge strike of over 15,000 textile workers at the Ghazl el-Mahallah textile factory in Egypt. According to him, this is the largest textile factory in the Middle East, with over 27,000 workers. The Egyptian government has declared the strike “illegal,” potentially opening the way for a police confrontation with the strikers. As far as I know, the Western media has yet to pick up on this story.
