Feb. 1, 2011 Jordan protesters force change in that country as people are uprising against their governments and joins a string of countries under monumental change demanded by their people. Human rights, high prices, high fuel prices, totalitarian governments and an end to corruption in government are all the reasons why there is so much unrest in the Middle Eastern countries.
A peaceful protest held by hundreds of protesters against the Prime Minister Samir al Rifal in the city of Karak want him to step down. The people are angry about fuel prices, high prices, taxation and in general the policies of the government.
More Arab countries are joining the movement including Libya and Morocco especially on food prices and repressive rule by government. A wide spread protests grows in Jordan in cities of Amman, Irbid, Dhiban and throughout the country.
This is not an Islamic movement but rather similar to protests in Egypt, it is a movement of the people against the economic policies, continued poverty, high prices and high unemployment.
The kingdom of Jordan has come under fire in the past with growing civil unrest for bread subsidies in a country of 7 million people.
The growing global unrest in these countries are only reflected by what North America is experiencing after the financial meltdown of 2008. High unemployment in the United States and Canada is no better than the middle east. High food prices in the north america countries high fuel prices, health care, foreclosures and more government control of the food supply is at its breaking point.
The people of the world seem to be globally fed up with the corporate control of their lives through governments that do not meet the needs of millions of people.
