The Causes and Effects of the Arab Springs
Transcript of The Causes and Effects of the Arab Springs
In late August, anti-Gaddafi fighters captured Tripoli, scattering Gaddafi's government and marking the end of his 42 years of power. Protests in Egypt began on 25 January 2011 and ran for 18 days.
Beginning around midnight on 28 January, the Egyptian government attempted, somewhat successfully, to eliminate the nation's Internet access. Protests in Syria started on 26 January 2011, when a police officer assaulted a man in public at Al-Hareeka street in old Damascus.
On 5 August 2011, an anti-government demonstration took place in Syria called "God is with us", during which the Syrian security forces shot the protesters from inside the ambulances, killing 11 people consequently. The regional unrest has not been limited to countries of the Arab world. The early uprisings in North Africa were inspired by the 2009–2010 uprisings in the neighbouring state of Iran.
Due to unrest in the Middle East and North Africa, major regions of oil production, oil prices were likely to be higher than originally forecast.
