CAIRO: A group of Muslim Brotherhood members launched on Facebook a call for new acts of civil disobedience on Tuesday 17.
The members wrote on their Facebook page, “Each car will come to fill its tank with five liters and return to fill it again, and so on to cause congestion at fuel stations and cause a fuel crisis again.”
The group also called for demonstrations across the country starting from the early morning.
Human rights activist and executive director of the Ibn Khaldun Center for Development Studies, Dalia Ziada, said Youm7, “The State has the right to deal with those people if they disrupt citizens’ interests and their lives.”
Former Member of Parliament, engineer Hamdy al-Fakharany described these calls to Youm7 as “daydreams”, saying that “calls for fabricating a fuel crisis are nonsense.”
Al-Fakharany said that if they attempt to execute this plan, the workers at the fuel stations and the citizens themselves would respond, as well as security forces and that such a plan would ultimately fail as did an earlier plan of disrupting the metro.
