    May 1 is International Labour Day, a day that traditionally sees workers protest for more rights. In Egypt, a rally is planned at Tahrir Square, where the revolution took root.

    But long before Hosni Mubarak was deposed in February, many people were fighting against deep-rooted injustices, poor working conditions and low wages. Some say that the revolution started in the industrial town of Malhalla.

    Al Jazeera's Mohamed Vall went to visit.
