 عندما تجد شوارع القاهرة خالية, اذن انه اضراب سائقى الميكروباص!
فى هذا الفيديو, يقول سائقى الميكروباص انهم لا يجدوا الجاز لمركباتهم, و ان وجد فاسعاره مرتفعة جداً.

و على عكس تصريح وزير البترول الذى قال ان سبب اضراب سائقى الميكروباص هو زيادة الاجرة, يعلن السائقون انهم لا يريدوا زيادة فى الاجرة, كل ما يريدونه هو توافر الجاز باسعار معقولة!
