Arab Spring One Year On: What Happened, What Changed?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 17, 2011

One year ago today, Mohamed Bouazizi set himself alight in Tunisia. It was a personal protest that had huge ramifications not only for his homeland, but the entire region. This was the incident which triggered the demonstrations that spread from Tunisia into Egypt, Libya, Syria and beyond. This was the start of the Arab Spring.

At Bouazizi’s funeral 5,000 marchers chanted: “Farewell, Mohammed, we will avenge you. We weep for you today, we will make those who caused your death weep.”

For all their passion, no one expected what happened next: 12 months of intense protests, violence and revolution across North Africa and the Middle East, which brought down governments and resulted in thousands of deaths.

But 12 months later what has the impact really been? Which governments have fallen, which are on the brink – and which, if any, are stronger than ever? Was the Arab Spring really a movement – or was it always an invention of the press?

And with protests breaking out in Russia, Greece, China and even New York throughout 2011, as well as in the Arab world, has the spirit of the Spring spilled become a truly global phenomenon?
