Civil unrest is global now and spreading

This week has seen an increase in social violence around the world, from China to North Africa and the Middle East and also various parts of Europe.

As things have started to unravel in Greece there have been major disturbances in Greece as austerities bite and the government seeks yet another bailout.  Here is a backgrounder from Russia Today

As well as troubles in China with droughts turning to floods, and severe shortages of electricity there have been major disturbances, especially in Eastern China.

As can be seen from this clip the demonstrations in Yemen have been massive.

This is a report on social disturbances and demonstrations throughout the world during just one week.
