VIDEO: Strikes and solidarity - Egypt's revolutionary students unite

As students of the German University in Cairo (GUC) enter the third week of their strike, students from other universities unite to fight against corruption and oppression on and off campus

By Simon Hanna

Striking students at the GUC have been joined by students from a number of other universities in their efforts to reinstate a number of students who were expelled or suspended after holding a series of demonstrations on campus. 

The events at the GUC are just the latest in a wave of university strikes and political activism that has rocketed since the revolution, and is increasingly opposing Egypt's military rule.
