Aya2Since the spark of the revolution in North Africa, the world's attention has been directed towards social movements. The revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt have inspired movements to emerge in the Middle East particularly Yemen and Bahrain then spread across the Arab region. The power of the masses has also inspired the streets of London, Spain and Romania. The mass mobilization has eventually grown into Occupy movements around the world to reach Wall Street, Gezi Park and Brazil. These movements explain a new reality of human connections. It asserts how people can inspire each other and support each other's movements. It translates common concerns and shared struggles for democracy and sustainability of people all over the world.
