Rebellion in the Neighbourhood
I found this paper posted on the entrance to my building in Mohandeseen. It's calling on everyone to participate in a demonstration this Saturday, at our famed Medan - Medan Anas Ibn Malak - to protest rising fruit, vegetable and meat prices. They ask to boycott those 'greedy' fruit and vegetable vendors who have increased prices on everything irrationally. It's quite funny to see this in a neighbourhood where everyone seems to be going about their business unaware of what's happening elsewhere in the country. Always good to see some rebellious behaviour where least expected.
