Time Difference or Cultural Difference? Why did the Call for Civil Disobedience Fail?

The assessment tackles the civil disobedience in Port Said and the spread of similar calls in a number of Egyptian governorates and cities. The assessment introduces the background of these calls and posits that it is likely that this disobedience will fail for the following reasons: • The decline of the ability of the proponents of this disobedience to build a public coalition to support it, as well as the diverging objectives of those proponents, • Lack of planning and organization, • Lack of civil disobedience tradition. However, the assessment stresses that the failure to achieve objectives of civil disobedience does not mean it is impossible to turn it into a more organized and dangerous form in the future.
