The protest at Telecom Egypt began at 9AM today when thousands of workers demonstrated in front of the Ramses branch of the company, stating their demands, which include raises by 10 per cent and sacking the company's managing director, Tarek Tantawi, threatining an open sit-in if their demands are not met.

The demonstration later spread to other branches including those in Zamalek and Heliopolis.

Workers rejected negotiating with Tantawi and insisted on directing their complaints to Minister of Communications and Information Technology Tarek Kamel directly.

The headquarters of Telecom Egypt in the Smart Village also witnessed some strikes yesterday.
