dbo:abstract
  • The Jordanian protests is a series of protests in Jordan that began on January 2011, and resulted in the firing of the cabinet ministers of the government. In its early phase, protests in Jordan were initially against unemployment, inflation, corruption. along with demanding for real constitutional monarchy and electoral reforms. The protestors' demands then escalated to a call for abdication of King Abdullah II, as well as an end to the Hashemite monarchy rule following the government announcement of hiking in the price of fuel on 13 November 2012.Food inflation and salaries were a cause for resentment in the country. The 2010-2011 Tunisian Revolution and the 2011 Egyptian Revolution also raised hopes for political change in the region. Together with unrest elsewhere in the Middle East and North Africa, including the disturbances in Syria and Yemen, they were part of the Arab Spring. (en)
