According to the World Socialist Web Site, February 2011 will go down as a turning point in world history. Early February 2011, the Middle East and North Africa were inflamed by mass protests of workers and youth that culminated, on February 11, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned. The social upheaval has included Algeria, Bahrain, Iraq, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen.
The author of the website announcement contends that the struggles will expand and portend colossal changes in the coming year.
