Amonsito textile factory owner Syrian-American Adel Agha fled Egypt in 2007 and responsibility for the factory was assumed by Manpower and Immigration Ministry and Bank Misr. Amonisto workers went on strike and Tabula Gaza blogged [1]how they were kicked out of a parliament session, with six workers “kidnapped” and taken to police stations. Arabawy shared the story from the beginning [2]with pictures of the workers. (Witness accounts here [3])
