Breaking News: The Phoenix rise from the Grave of the Arab Spring: https://www.middleeastmonitor.com...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**UPDATE**

3 months ago:

Honk Kong students rose up to demand Democracy instead of Communist style elections. (Hong Kong people clash violently with the pro-CPC authority video here: https://www.youtube.com...)

2 months ago:

Violent protests break out in Barcelona in Spain (called catalonia in spanish), over right to referendum. This is a golden age of internet-democracy... (article: http://www.theguardian.com...). To understand the political tense history of the coastal city with the mainland (watch this: https://www.youtube.com...)

1 month ago:

Student uprising in October in Egpyt. (article: http://www.aljazeera.com...) The movement died down even before it began due to Military State installing a permanent coup in Egypt. Sadly, even though we have leaks from the Nsa and wikileaks in the third world surveillance is much easier in absence of any judicial oversight. The Surveillance state is alive and well.

A month after the clash in Barcelona in Spain the rioters were 'vindicated' because the President went forward with what Spain deemed an 'illegal' and risky referendum (informal vote) and they won eighty percent of the votes!: (article: http://www.bbc.co.uk...).

TODAY: It is not being reported (other than BBC exclusively) that protesters are still walking on the streets of Hong Kong. But a few days earlier the government finally cracked down. The odd thing was as if Communist Party in Beijing was a million miles away. The word 'protest' in Communism is next to the word 'impossible' in the dictionary, and the rulers in China seemed oddly to let the protests fuel for 3 months. They seemed perplexed or amused, who knows? Then after a 3 month lull the brutal crackdown finally came as promised. (article: http://www.theguardian.com....)

What took you so long, China?

Breaking News:
Finally, in the Muslim Youth Uprising day the opposition parites mobilised to protest the coup to oust democratically-elected Muslim Brotherhood's President Morsi last year. (article: http://www.presstv.ir...). The movement was smaller, however, because the military took over from the previous dictator. The military has the backing of the american government which provides $5 billion dollars in foreign aid to Egypt except that the money is ear-marked for weapons and military purposes.

Its not something you would hear on the news but Europe was burning on Feb 15, 2003 with Iraq war protests. The Guiness record book: (http://www.ips-dc.org...) calls it the largest anti-war protest with 14 million people spanning including Rome as the epicentre with the largest, France, Australia, South Africa, India and even Antartica lol.. in the largest symbolic middle finger to the Bush government in world history. Of course, everybody tuned onto CNN and Fox News and put on their ear-muffs until the noise died.

The protest in Egypt fueld by one Tunisie fruitseller setting himself on fire and immolating himself to protest the police stealing his cart mobilised an uprising of the youth 20 million strong who descended to one place known as Tahrir Square. If you want to know what really happened watch this oscar-nominated Netflix original (here: www.netflix.com/WiMovie/70268449 and trailer: https://www.youtube.com...). This was not like the Iraq War where tens of millions spread out over 800 cities and towns over the world. This was in one place called Tahrir and it was 20,000,0000 Students, young adults and teenagers rising up for Spring of Democracy in the corrupt Middle-east.

DEMOCRACY NOW!

Democracy's all fine and good so long as the U.S. doesn't meddle in it. I hope that's not the case right now in the Middle East (which is most probably wishful thinking).

Right, I just hope the U.S. is not involved.
