Will protests change North Africa and Mid-East?
Following anti-government protests in Tunisia in January, unrest has erupted in both Egypt and Yemen. What impact could this have on the region as a whole?
Protests over unemployment and high food prices, sparked by a student who set himself on fire in Tunisia, resulted in the ousting of President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in January.
On Saturday, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets of cities in Egypt for a fifth day. President Hosni Mubarak was forced to make changes to his government to try and quell the uprising.
Do you live in any of the countries affected, or in neighbouring countries? What is your reaction to the protests? Have you taken part in any of the demonstrations? How might these demonstrations affect the political and social infrastructures of these countries?
