The 2018–19 Arab protests,[1] also referred to as the New Arab Spring[2] or Arab Spring 2.0,[3] are massive anti-government protests in several Arab countries, including Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia.[2] Economic protests also took place in the Gaza Strip.[4] Sudan has been the scene of violent protests, resulting in the overthrow of president Omar al-Bashir in a military coup d'état.[5] The protests resemble the earlier Arab Spring wave of pro-democracy protests from 2010 to 2012.
