Next week the Militant will feature an interview with textile workers leaders in Mahalla, Egypt. Strikes and mass protests there since 2006 gave impetus to the mobilizations that toppled dictator Hosni Mubarak earlier this year.
What is known as the January 25 Revolution really began here in Mahalla several years before, explains Kamal Fayoumi, a leader of the textile workers.
