2018–19 Arab protests
The 2018–19 Arab protests, also referred to as the New Arab Spring or Arab Spring 2.0, are massive anti-government protests in several Arab countries, including Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia. Economic protests also took place in the Gaza Strip. Sudan has been the scene of violent protests, resulting in the overthrow of president Omar al-Bashir in a military coup d'état. The protests resemble the earlier Arab Spring wave of pro-democracy protests from 2010 to 2012.
