Watan Hurr to protest price increases Monday

The Watan Hurr (Free Country) popular movement will stage protests over price increases on food next Monday in front of the People’s Assembly in Cairo and the Chamber of Commerce in Alexandria.

They will be joined by other opposition movements like Kefaya, 6th April, and The Youth for Justice and Development. Protesters will gather under the motto “We are Hungry” and carry spoons and empty dishes.

Essam el-Sherif, spokesperson for Watan Hurr, stated that the protest is the last of a series of demonstrations staged by the movement in other Cairo and Giza districts.

Meanwhile, the coordinator for Kefaya, Abdel Halim Qandil, attributed his group's participation to their rejection of current social and economic conditions.
