Protester in Tahrir on Friday, denouncing the monthly fees (which come with the electricity bills) imposed by the government on citizens for “garbage collection”, though the service is hardly provided. The issue has been the target of campaigners since 2006.
Remember Adel el-Badri of the so called Free Union of Egypt’s Workers? He came back to life on Friday, mobilizing hand in hand with the state-backed unions and the mentally deranged singer Ahmad Spider, a counter-protest to Tahrir, in support of the military junta.

Those lazy journalists are happy to get anyone to speak in the name of the workers, though if they had done their homework they would have found out easily that Badri has NO support on the ground whatsoever, and that his fake union doesn’t exist except in the cyberspace.
