Meanwhile, another wave of labor strikes in underway in Egypt. Since 2007, Egyptian workers and members of the professions (including the Lawyers' Syndicate) have often launched strikes to protest government administrative and economic decisions, as well as to voice a variety of grievances.

Presently, strikes, demonstrations and sit-ins are underway in Cairo, Giza, Suez, Ismailiya, Helwan and other sites.
