Once a process starts, it sometimes takes on a life of its own

From the Guardian blog:

9.30pm GMT: Still on the Suez Canal, Ahram Online says that workers from five service companies owned by the Suez Canal Authority have begun "an open-ended sit-in" today:

Over 6000 protesters have agreed that they will not go home today once their shift is over and will continue their sit-in in front of the company's headquarters until their demands are met. They are protesting against poor wages and deteriorating health and working conditions and demanded that their salaries and benefits meet the standard of those working for the Suez Canal Authority.
