In the wake of recent unrest and protesting, both have spread to other nation as news reports indicate. The reason political unrest spreads like wildfire and the solution to terminate it in all regions continues to elude politicians and news agencies alike, is the perpetual ineffective decision to continue ignoring the most simple needs of their populations. Government leaders do not struggle for basic necessities; therein lies the corruption that people recognize and protest against.
Be they Tunisian, Egyptian, or Yemenis, people of every nation all require the same complete human services that no existing current government is fully providing and which are severely lacking in some more than others, thus causing protesting. What other recourse do people have when governments continually fail them?
People of the Middle East region are demanding change “calling for economic reforms and an end to corruption.” They are complaining of the same “mounting poverty among a growing population and frustration with a lack of political freedoms.” BBC News 27 January 2011.
TIME reports of late, the Palestinian government is getting worried (as well they should!) “The Palestinian leadership is very nervous and is worried about what will happen to them if the Palestinian people decide they are sick and tired of the situation,” says Rana, 28, who was among the many residents not at the demonstration but troubled by the authorities’ reaction to it.” By KARL VICK / RAMALLAH Karl Vick / Ramallah – Sun Feb 6, 12:45 am ET
People are waking up to the facts; no citizens are safe from the abuses wrought upon them by governments. Most everyone struggles to eat, keep shoes on their feet or those of the children, have a roof overhead and forget medical needs or obtaining a decent education. What purpose is living when everything about living is miserable? Young people around the globe recognize better than most there is nothing to hope for in their future if things go unchanged.
The following Reuters news piece reported by Patrick Werr and Alexander Dziadosz demonstrates governments’ total lack of understanding or the will to change the very circumstances that people are protesting. emphasis added
COMMANDER URGES NORMALITY
“The commander of the army, which many say holds the key to Egypt ‘s future, toured Tahrir (Liberation) Square to try to persuade the protesters, complaining about poverty, repression and corruption, to leave the usually busy intersection.”
“We want people to go back to work and to get paid, and life to get back to normal,” army commander Hassan al-Roweny said.
“The United States , Egypt ‘s ally which provides the army with $1.3 billion annually, has underlined the need for gradual change in political talks between the government and opposition groups in order to achieve an orderly handover of power.”
“I don’t believe that we solve the world’s problems by flicking a switch and holding an election … Egypt is a classic case in point,” said British Prime Minister David Cameron, echoing a note of caution in the West over any sudden change.”
Au contraire mon capitan! One flick of sudden change and governments could end All protesting. Cease corruption! –Give all people the basics, effectively end poverty and people would willingly, happily “go back to work and life could get back to better than normal.”
