One of the most important turning points.. Mahalla!


It's history goes back before the 6th of April 2008, but this date is special in a special way.

It's the city which inspired the Egyptians and certainly changed the the history of the Egyptian labor movement forever, Egyptian labor movement is full of struggles, fights, sacrifices and victories. But what makes Mahala special is that it came out of nowhere for some people who knew nothing about the social struggle in Egypt under the rule of the businessmen for years and years.

The workers of this city sculpted the it's name in many minds after that two day uprising against the increased prices and shortage of bread where they confronted Mubarak's troops and tanks, and in these moments some people knew that it's a matter of time till we witness the real revolution.

Thit is a magnificent example of the people realizing they are worth more, and must fight alongside each other, not against. Power to the Proletariat.

We've come a long way..
