"Defying increasing government threats of a military crackdown, doctors in white lab coats and lawyers in black robes streamed into Cairo's Tahrir Square Thursday and labor unrest spread across the country. The strikes gave powerful momentum to Egypt's wave of anti-government protests — now in their 17th day — and with its efforts to manage the crisis failing, the government threatened the army could impose martial law."
