The Arab Uprisings are a seminal moment in world history. For years, Arab regimes have expropriated power and wealth from their people. In the age of the internet, exploding populations and greater aspirations, these regimes have been increasingly incongruous. People, regardless of their race, religion, gender or culture, do not want to live in fear. They do not want a midnight knock on their doors. They want basic freedoms, education for their children, decent jobs, peace and prosperity. In short, people every want a life of dignity, and the Arab Uprisings are the Arab people’s struggle for such a life.
At Fair Observer, our goal is to help you make sense of the world. This book is our enterprise to ensure that you understand the uprisings better. Abul-Hasanat Siddique and Casper Wuite, the authors, seek to explain what happened, why it happened, what is different, what lies ahead and what can be done.
