Jordanian Protests

Continue in earnest.

Spanning four successive Fridays the protests have ended more or less peaceably.

Comprising of Islamist and Leftist parties, thematic calls included the resignation of the government of Samir Rifai, free elections based on a just election law, an end to corruption and privatization, a cancellation of the Jordan-Israel peace treaty and an end to the withdrawal for citizenships from Jordanian citizens of Palestinian origin.
