"Meanwhile, anti-government activists have also been calling for nationwide action, at a time of growing anger over worsening economic conditions...

"The powerful opposition Muslim Brotherhood has also pledged its support for the worker’s strike.

"The Egyptian authorities have been accused of using disproportionate force against protesters in recent years."
