The Egyptian Centre for Economic and Social rights reported protest movements rose dramatically during the second half of June.
A contentious presidential election seemed to account for the rise.
The Egyptian Centre for Economic and Social Rights recorded only 38 protests during the first half of the month, but 119 protests ended the month. Reasons for protests included blackouts, the release of prisoners, pollution, legal retribution, and exam difficulty.
Governmental bodies organised 41 protests, unaffiliated citizens coordinated 32 protests, while 23 protests plauged the business sector.
Students organised seven protests. Businesses sponsored four, and drivers coordinated four as well. Activists and entrepreneurs accounted for three cases while peasants and lawyers were responsible for only one case of protest.
Most demonstrations, 32, were to improve living conditions.
Seven were in favor of raising salaries. Seven were to demand confirmations or appointments, six cases against the lack of water, five cases against corruption, lack of fuel, arbitrary relocation, and the difficulty of exams.
Four protests were in objection of unfair dismissal, three protests against flooding, and three cases were reported against work-related injuries, arrest of workers at work, and the deteriorating security situation.
Two protests were organised against ill-treatment of employees, discrimination at work, road accidents.
Among the workers protests were employees seeking to clear their names of falsifying election ballots , such as the workers in the El-Amiriya printing presses.
