Nile River Police evacuates 'feluccas' in front of NDP building in Cairo

Boats owners initially refused to leave, while it is unclear where they will go now. Their evacuation comes as part of development plans for the Nile area

The Nile River Police unit has started to evacuate Nile leisure boats (known locally as feluccas) docked in front of the former National Democratic Party (NDP) building on the Nile Corniche in Cairo Sunday, despite the refusal of their owners.

The move comes as part of Cairo governorate's plan to renovate the Nile Corniche the Nile River, Al-Ahram Arabic website reported.
According to Al-Ahram, the Nile River Police attempted to force the owners of the Nile boats to leave the docks, shutting down electricity generators in a bid to force them to leave.

"There are at least 1,000 families earning their living from those boats. We won't leave," one of the boat owners told Al-Ahram.

Boat owners organised a small protest, chanting on "We won't leave, we won't leave" before eventually starting to undock their boats.

According to the Cairo Governorate, the boats will move to docks at El-Sahel area in North Cairo.

Do the plans in the previous pages involve getting rid of the old chaotic urban fabric of the greater Cairo area? I really wish these developers would get rid of the slums lining the outskirts of Cairo and replace them with actual ordered streets and decent buildings. The whole system needs to be changed as well in order to avoid unorganised forms of growth, meaning zoning laws need to be implemented among other things. I see hope for the future of Cairo and Egypt, but they've gotta make sure the foundations are right before embarking on such ambitious ventures.
