Through the Protests, the Arab people have many challenges to overcome with the destruction of cities, displacement of civilians and many more. CONT'D Human rights abuses were documented. Millions of protesters from a variety of socio- economic and religious backgrounds demanded the over throw of the regime in which many of the of the involved countries had. During the revolution many were against unemployment The protesters demands than escalated to overthrow their leaders. COUNTRIES INVOLVED TUNASIA EGYPT LIBYA YEMEN SYRIA BAHRAIN TUNASIA It occurred in Tunisia on December 17, 2010 after the killing of Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire. It was reported that Bouzizi was always mistreated by police officers and would constantly take his wheel barrel away which was needed to sell his produce. Bouaziz tried to complain tried to complain about the local municipal officers, but they refused to speak with him, which eventually led him to set himself on fire. He returned to the provincial headquarters, and poured fuel all over himself. Protests erupted due to his death. It only took about 23 days after the death of Mohamed Bouazizi for President Ben Ali rule over Tunisia to finish. The citizens of Tunisia have been suffering from inadequate income. Many civilians blamed the Ben Ali for the economic crisis. EGYPT Egypt’s leader during the Arab Spring is named Muhammad Hosni El Sayed Mubarak. He served as the fourth president of Egypt. Because of the civilian’s involvement in the Arab spring, Mubarak had step down as president and was ordered for both him and sons to be detained for allegations of corruption and peaceful protesters during the revolution. LIBYA The third country to be involved in the Arab Spring was Libya. Protests began because civilians are eager to bring down the regime. Protests broke out in different areas of Libya to challenge his 42-year rule. The UN had to eventually step in because conditions continued to worsen. The UN passed Resolution 1970 to impose sanctions on Gaddafi and eventually refer the case the International Criminal Court. After the death of Gaddafi, it was declared victory. The UN soon withdrew mandate and NATO eventually ended its mission. Civilians in Libya wanted change and needed it to happen. Libya civilians were involved because the many factors they wanted to achieve that were previously being ignored such as many human rights. They were also angry about the increasing food prices and global famine, civilians were trying to accomplish a better life. YEMEN The citizens of Yemen were against unemployment, economic conditions and corruption, which resulted in protest. The protester wished to overthrow their President because of the corruption in which he advocated. With success of the protests in Yemen, the president announced not to run in 2013. The factors in which the revolt occurred are all similar to the rest of the countries involved in the Arab Spring. SYRIA The firth country to be apart of the Arab Spring is Syria. When the protests in Syria began they were not as large until Hassan Ali Akleh imitated the act in which Mohamed Bouziz did in Tunisia. He burned himself to show an act of protest against the Syrian Government. Syria finally decided to protest against their leader after being inspired by other Middle Eastern countries. They demanded human rights, free and fair elections and consideration of the corruption within the country. Since Bashar Al Assad has been the leader of Syria, the country has been deprived of human rights and the country has been in corruption. Civilians in this country were involved in the Arab Spring to change this. BAHRAIN The final country to be involved in the Arab Spring is Bahrain. Bahrain’s uprising began on February 14, 2012 when reacted to what was going on in Egypt. Violent protests than began to occur causing the death of two citizens. Civilians of Bahrain wanted more human rights and political freedom. The main cause of the uprising was the inspiration from Egypt and Tunisia.
