Since i left a lot has been happening in the world. especially in North Africa and the Middle East. as everyone remembers the Egyptian revolution was successful, and as many prominent politicians described, this has caused unrest in the Arab world. how much unrest exactly? well basically every Arab country (excluding Iraq) has had some form of popular dissent. Libya is in full out Civil War with the government.
From Algeria To Iran
A wave of popular support not only for human rights, but for democracy. this is no ordinary Arab revolutionary movement, from all sides it seems completely secular. not only secular, but... peaceful in nature
Of course Libya's situation has arisen to the status of Civil War, not because of the protester's accord, but because the government refused to step down and openly fired on peaceful protesters. I urge everyone to vote for the passing of a no-fly zone over Libya. Libyan planes are actively bombing pro-Democracy protesters. http://www.avaaz.org/en/libya_no_fly_zone_1/?cl=974484304&v=8575. It's the least any of us can do.
Popular sentiment has caused uprisings in a whole slew of countries, not only for these countries in turmoil. people are starting to realize, the people can do something about their situations, they can cause change.
Like the workers standing up for their benefits in Michigan
It is not clear what the months ahead will be like, but this is clear. Shit is Fucked Up. choose your side carefully
