Arab Spring

"Arab Spring is a term used to describe a series of political and social movements in northern Africa and the Middle East in 2010 and 2011. The Arab Spring was characterized by antigovernment protests and pro-democracy demonstrations. In many countries, the movements met with violent government reaction. In some places, protests forced government leaders from power. In others, the Arab Spring led to bloody conflict."
