[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NDYzODYwX0Y5RkYyODAw] Increase in Fuel Prices Spark Protests in Jordan The news sparked protests in the capital, Amman, and at least 12 other cities across Jordan. “Revolution, revolution, it is a popular revolution,” chanted about 2,000 protesters in an impromptu demonstration at a main Amman square, housing the Interior Ministry and other vital government departments. The protesters — affiliated with Muslim, Arab nationalist, Marxist, Communist and youth opposition groups — also targeted Abdullah in a rare public display against the monarch. Criticizing the king in public is forbidden in Jordan and is punishable by up to three years in jail. “Freedom is from God, in spite of you, Abdullah,” they shouted. http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/jordan-raises-gas-fuel-prices-sparking-protests-rare-public-criticism-of-king/2012/11/13/a3ba3272-2dd7-11e2-b631-2aad9d9c73ac_story.html [/quote]

Protests break out in Jordan, mention king by name
As of this writing, protesters are amassing in Amman, the capital, in a demonstration that was initially sparked by cuts to fuel subsidies but have come to more directly address the country’s governing system, including King Abdullah himself.
Local media report protests in several other Jordanian cities. Demonstrations in the country’s south have “become commonplace over the past year,” George Washington University Professor Marc Lynch said, pointing to this article on “tribal dissent” in the kingdom.
