Many Egyptians are uniting against President Mohamed Morsi's economic policies as his government pursues a $4.8 billion loan from the IMF. In order to qualify for the loan, the IMF has imposed strict rules, including an end to subsidies for many essentials such as food and fuel. Opponents feel these measures will make life more difficult for ordinary people already struggling in Egypt's weak economy, and that ultimately the loan will only add to the country's debt.
