Mohamed Maree is not the first Egyptian blogger to loose he job because of what he writes in his blog, as he has been preceded by Founon and Ahmed El Droubi, but he is the most recent one to loose his job because of his writings. Zeinobia elaborates more on the issue: “Maree was working in a pharmaceutical company for two and half months when suddenly the administration of that company decided to terminate his contract because the company found out about he has got political activities and his views are against the Egyptian government”. She then wonders: “Do we have to blog anonymously in order to keep our jobs!!?”
