Body: As Port Said residents wrap up the first week of a civil disobedience campaign, many highlight unemployment, housing and labor issues. Activists are calling for residents who were killed in a recent spate of violence in the city to be granted the same privileges as the martyrs of the 2011 Egyptian revolution. They also question the political motives behind government talk about restoring the free zone status of the city.
