The Arab Spring -
"The Arab Spring (Arabic: الثورات العربية‎ al-Thūrāt al-ʻArabiyy; literally the Arabic Rebellions or the Arab Revolutions) is a revolutionary wave of demonstrations and protests occurring in the Arab world that began on Friday, 17 December 2010.
 
The protests have shared techniques of mostly civil resistance in sustained campaigns involving strikes, demonstrations, marches, and rallies, as well as the use of social media to organize, communicate, and raise awareness in the face of state attempts at repression and Internet censorship."
