Egypt's archeologists threatening strike if demands not met

Youm7 (Dina Abdel Alem)

Protesting archeology workers threatened to begin into work and hunger strikes, close all archeological sites, and steal monuments from museums and stores if their demands are not met.

Protestors are continuing their sit-in, which began Sunday, calling for the official appointment 12,000 workers in Supreme Council of the Antiquities.

Stealing monuments from museums and stores is not going to win them any sympathy. What are their demands? Are they reasonable or "pie in the sky"?
