Just days after the Egyptian labor movement joined the popular uprising that ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, the ruling military council has called on labor leaders to halt strikes and protests. "Egyptian politics didn't begin on January 25th," says Barnard College Professor Mona El-Ghobashy, who has written extensively on politics and social movements in the Middle East and North Africa, "There is a pre-history to this revolt," she says. "For us to be able to really understand the significance of what's happening today, we have to link it to the fabric of Egyptian politics starting in 2000."
