[quote:Anonymous Coward 23406708:MV8yMDUwMzA4XzM0NTU4NDU2XzY5NTYwOUU2] More Unions Striking... Jordanian unions held a strike on Sunday to protest fuel price rises, two days after thousands of demonstrators in Amman called for the king to go, an official told AFP. "All 15 unions except the nurses' union stopped working between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm (0800-1100 GMT) on Sunday," said Mahmud Abu Ghunayma, head of Jordan's 15-member professional associations body... The head of the doctors' union, Ahmed al-Armuti, said the strike had excluded "emergency sectors," including midwifery and nursing. The teachers' union told AFP it striked on Sunday, with spokesman Ayman al-Akur saying "the strike was observed by 70 to 75 percent of schools across the country". (teacher's strike will continue tomorrow) http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/58519.aspx [/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.
