What started in Tunisia has spread like wildfire to other Arab states with less than free regimes. The people are rising up against their governments. A lack of work and rising food prices have turned a bad situation into a desperate situation for many in countries such as Egypt, Algeria, Libya and even Yemen. It's only a matter of time before Kuwait and Saudi Arabia ignite right? It seems Facebook and Twitter play their part in organising the protests so we ask you to spread these images on your Facebook and Twitter like the good people you are. These protests go to show that if you want to change something you need to change it from the inside and not go barging in as a foreign power.
