posted on Jan, 30 2011 @ 10:19 PM
This thread is to provide a reference list and starting point for all of the countries that are experiencing unrest, uprisings or chaos within the last week or so, or who are expected to soon, and the corresponding current ATS threads and/or MSM news articles about each. I have left out countries I didn't find any news or current threads on, but will add them as events arise. A few countries are blank (or sparse) because they're so obviously being covered and I have not compiled a list of those threads yet.

Please let me know if you have a current thread that should be added, or a news article that adds new updated information, and I will reproduce the list in a new post with the new additions once a day or so (depending on the number of additions).

Great idea and good work!

Not sure if this is how the thread works but can you add the following?:

TPTB are preparing for unrest in our emerald isle:

Officers have spent several days undergoing intensive preparation for any potential protests or street violence in the build up to Election Day. The Public Order Unit was practicing defensive formations, and is also understood to have been trained to deal with petrol bombs. A source explained: "Training has intensified recently to deal with any civil unrest around election time. "Despite the problems we've had in this country there has been relatively little violence but the highest levels of precautions are being taken."

Thanks doing this, makes it much easier to track.

Sure! I'll add it next update!

Great list. I've been looking for something like this.

posted on Jan, 30 2011 @ 10:40 PM
Have posted this before but I believe it to be relevant to this thread so the last place I'll post it.

Edgar Cayce prophecy (take it as you will). 'Cayce also predicted the possibility of a third world war. He spoke of strifes arising near the Davis Straits, and in Libya, and in Egypt, in Ankara, and in Syria; through the straits around those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf."'

Awesome! I was waiting for someone to post a list of all the places that have protests going on lately.

Im not sure if this goes hand in hand with Indonesia, but heres another link about the Papuans rallying for independence. ATS thread

Do not forget Haiti. There is a run off election coming up. A month ago during the election results there were riots, running gun fights with UN occupiers, and looting. The next weeks could be exciting depending on who is placed into the presidency. Celestin is out I heard, and I do not know where sweet mickey is in all of it. Haiti is always crazy, but it does coincide with the rest of the world going crazy.

LOL, and I've said this before about that prophecy: it's a bit like shooting fish in a barrel.

Will you try to gather some more info on that? The thread died on the 26th, and searching Google doesn't bring up much about what happened after the 26th, so it kind of leaves it hanging. If you can bring us up to speed on the present situation there (or at least some political analyst's commentary on what's expected to happen, etc) I'll add it so we can all continue to monitor the situation!

I kind of want this thread to be an index of all the info that's relevant *right now*, as in the last 48 hours and extending into the next few days, so that it doesn't become bloated with superfluous info and hard to navigate. If there's articles or threads that are older but give a good background to a current situation, I'll add both the old and the new threads so it's easy to find both.

Definitely a crazy world we live in right now. New member here after being banned from another 3 letter "alternative news" site that I wish to leave nameless so I don't know if this has been shown anywhere at ATS yet. Interactive map of the uprisings and related news:

With all of the civil unrest going on around the world right now THIS is looking like a pretty damned good solution.

Trust me, what you need is a one page website that scrolls horizontally in columns by country with the links in descending chronological order.

Just like this:

With a little jQuery you could make it into something extraordinary:

I could build and design it for you in less than 30 minutes if you're serious about this. I just don't think an updated forum thread is the best way of presenting such a useful archive.

I have a website hosted and ready to go. Write some code, I'll give you an FTP account and you can set up the entire subdomain. I'll create any databases you need and whatnot (it's hosted by GoDaddy, so I can do basically anything you need). Linux and SQL, PHP5 I believe. Show me what you've got, and I'll just devote the main domain to the thing, it's a personal website I haven't used in a while. (Not a personalized name, though).
