Protests Heat Up In Egypt and Yemen, Protestor Shot, This is a revolution!

Posted On: Drudgereport.com

Protests against Egyptian president spread

“This is a revolution,” one 16-year-old protester said in Suez late on Thursday. “Every day we’re coming back here.”

Web activists called for mass protests across Egypt on Friday to end President Hosni Mubarak’s three-decade rule after protesters clashed with security forces late into the night in the eastern city of Suez.

Egyptian protests intensify, as clashes spread across the Middle East

Like in many other countries in the region, protesters in Egypt complain about surging prices, unemployment and the authorities’ reliance on heavy-handed security to keep dissenting voices quiet. The protests are inspired by Tunisia, where a democratic movement recently overthrew the government.

Thousands of Yemenis demand change in government

Yemen is the latest Arab state to be hit by mass anti-government protests, joining Tunisia and Egypt in calls for revolutionary change. The demonstrations pose a new threat to the stability of Yemen, the Arab world’s most impoverished nation, which has become a haven for al-Qaida militants.
