Arab Spring – What’s Happening Now? An Update

Almost a year later, the effects of Arab Spring are still being felt.

Last December, the people of North Africa started what is being called “Arab Spring.”

Arab Spring refers to a series of uprisings by the people in a number of Arab countries.

The citizens rebelled when they could no longer put up with dictators and their cruelty.

They forced the President of Tunisia to flee to Saudi Arabia and the President of Egypt to quit his job and move away.
