    2011 will go down in history as the year that people in many countries said enough is enough and made the effort to change things that have been bothering them for a long time.A young unemployed Tunisian graduate will be remembered for ever as the person who set things in motion when after police took his trolley of veggies/fruits that he was selling to make ends meet he set himself on fire and the rest is history.

    It may have started in Tunisia but now in Algeria,Morocco,Libya,Egypt,Yemen people have risen and things will never be the same.In many Africa and Middle East countries governments are nervous and watching the unfolding drama with alarm.Dictators all over the world will have to learn from Ben Ali's mistakes or be doomed to the garbage pile of history.

    Rulers in Belarus,Burma,N.Korea,Iran,Jordan,Zimbabwe better take note.

    This is of great concern, particularly in Ivory coast and in the Congo.
    The Congolese government has proposed a constitution revision to go from 2 runs to just one where the candidate with the most votes passes (even if it is 10%). Unfortunately this was adopted by the two chambers.:A S thumbs_down:
    To reverse the clock the opposition needs to gather 100 000 signatures through a petition. People are not ready to wait for that and the public anger is growing... THis year is election year and the population is ready to use "unconventional weapons" against dirigeants... watch this space for surprises...
