Background to the uprising

The Arab Spring refers to the uprising of pro-democracy movements that spread across the Middle east in 2011. Beginning in Tunisia, followed by Egypt, Lybia, Yemen and Syria, revolts began attempting to overthrow dictatorial governments, some of which had been in rule for decades.
