Middle East Revolution, Continued

 

But Wait, There's More

The citizens of Jordan saw this and wanted their voice to be heard, too. Due to poor choices from a corrupt Prime Minister, the people demanded to choose a new one. While Samir Rifai agreed to resign, the staunch Muslims did not like the choice of the Jordanian King Abdullah to appoint Mr. Marouf Bakhit. Even if he promises prompt and hefty reformation. They showed their disapproval with large street protests.

It starts to get heavy and head starts to roll when there is still so much more happenings. In Algeria, opposition groups are calling for protests against the government. The people witness what is happening around them and don't want to be left out. Riots had already been held over the high increase in food prices.

The president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, has lifted the ban against protesting, except for in the capital city. He has called his country to be in a “state of emergency”. In the meantime, he plans to hold a rapid meeting to create new jobs.

      Yemen, Serbia and Iraq Join the Party

Yemen held the “Day of Rage” demonstration where the capital city, Sanaa, saw over 20,000 anti-government protesters join together to voice out against their commander, President Ali Abdullah Saleh. They shouted for a change in the regime. Though Mr. Saleh is offering to step down at the end of his term in 2013, and promising his son will not take over the reigns, they want change now.

Likewise, Nouri Maliki, Prime Minister of Iraq, said he will not seek another term when his runs out in 2014. He always want to implement a two-year term maximum for the governing office. He even decided to give back half of his pay. This was to show the people that he is aware of the abyss between the rich and the poor.

Serbia wants change, too. They are demanding an early election, instead of waiting until 2012. Over 50,000 protesters appeared at the capital, Belgrade, to voice their disapproval. The opposition leader for the Serbian Progressive Rally, Tomislav Nikolic, warned the government they had two months to face a new poll or there would be civil disobedience.
