52 Ain Shams University workers on strike

Fifty two civil servants and workers are currently on a sit-in at the Ain Shams University Campus, after the administration's decision to cut down their basic monthly salary from LE220 (US$38) to LE134 (US$23.3), according to Kefaya's website.

The workers tried without success to meet the University's dean, so they went on strike, and are refusing to leave the campus despite threats from the security.
