Egypt: Petition on Tuition

“We are students who have things to say. We want to be heard but no seems to want to listen. Or if they do, we are shoved to a different office where someone who would be more suitable for the job is. Then we get there, and the office is probably closed, or we're sent off to another office. We want to speak and we want to be heard.” By that opening description, a group of AUC (American University in Cairo) students initiated a new blog to protest rising fees and conditions on AUC new campus.
