Egypt's new military regime to effectively outlaw strikes


www.rawstory.com

CAIRO - Egypt's new military rulers will issue a warning on Monday against anyone who creates "chaos and disorder," an army source said.

The Higher Military Council will also ban meetings by labor unions or professional syndicates, effectively forbidding strikes, and tell all Egyptians to get back to work after the unrest that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

The army will also say it acknowledges and protects the right of people to protest, the source said.

Uh-Oh...

Looks like the temporary 'victory' and honeymoon with faux-freedom, maybe already over? Or perhaps it was nothing more than shifting from one form of dictatorial rule to military draconian rule?

Outlaw STRIKING? How the hell can you FORCE citizens to go to work against their will? That sounds more like nationwide SLAVERY than "democracy" to me...

This whole ordeal is FAR from over obviously. I hope the Egyptians remain firm, and I hope the military doesn't do anything stupid here. If they truly espouse democracy and the wishes of the people, then they need to work WITH them, and listen to them.

When Obama and Mullen said they ``trusted`` the Egyptian military... should have known this would happen... I mean, when NWO stooges like Mullen and Obama supports something, you know for a FACT it's bad for freedom and the average guy.

Time for Egyptians to FINISH the revolution.

Sounds like hearsay and fear mongering to me. Of course there will be lots of people calling for a return to calm and for people to get back to work. There are a million things that need fixing over there, wages being one obvious thing, and they won't all be done at once.

Somebody has to manage the change in an organized a way as possible. Some people will be unhappy with the way things go. The army has a fine line to tread between allowing expression of concerns and maintaining a functioning society. This is a real problem, but not the frying pan into the fire scenario that is being suggested.

There is no fairy godmother to come along and makes things nice over night. Lets get a grip and wish the Egyptians well without adding fuel to a fire that does not need it.

This is not a surprise. The demonstrators have met their objective with Murbarak and his allies ousted. Parliament has been dissolved and their is a caretaker government in place overseen by the military council. Moreover, the military has given a deadline of six months until elections. If there was no deadline and this rule was deemed indefinite then we ought start banging our drums. The thing has got to play out and banning strikes is step at restoring order, commerce, and security until the new constitution can be drafted and ratified and elections can be held.

It is time for the Egyptians to head home and let the chips fall were they may. It takes time to build a new governing body from the ground up and does not happen over night. It is good that at the military has given a clear timetable for the duration of their rule, and when they expect everything to be completed. All we can do is wait and hope that the military follows through with their objectives.
