Arab Spring

The Arab Spring which kicked off with demonstrations in Tunisia and Egypt is very much a work in progress. But it’s good to see so many people across these Middle Eastern countries rise up, protest and fight for what we in the West take for granted.

What’s been really impressive is how the use of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, etc. which were blamed for aiding the riots in London, have been used so skilfully to organise, communicate, and raise awareness in the struggle to rid their countries of tyrannical rulers.

So here’s hoping that these people will eventually get that which they truly desire — freedom and real democracy!
