Après la Tunisie, le géant égyptien se réveille et pourrait entraîner le Yémen, l'Algérie et la Syrie dans son sillage. Depuis 20 ans, peut-être même 30, tout ce que la planète compte de spécialistes, de diplomates et de politiciens se demandent quand la poudrière arabe va imploser.

Iranian Revolution. The Iranian Revolution (also known as the Islamic Revolution or the 1979 Revolution; Persian: انقلاب اسلامی, Enghelābe Eslāmi or انقلاب بیست و دو بهمن) refers to events involving the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty under Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, who was supported by the United States  and its eventual replacement with an Islamic republic under the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the revolution, supported by various leftist and Islamic organizations and Iranian student movements.
Demonstrations against the Shah commenced in October 1977, developing into a campaign of civil resistance that was of a religious nature (but with secular elements)  and which intensified in January 1978. Between August and December 1978 strikes and demonstrations paralyzed the country. The Shah left Iran for exile on January 16, 1979, as the last Persian monarch, leaving his duties to a regency council and an opposition-based prime minister. Temporary Autonomous Zone.
T.A.Z.: The Temporary Autonomous Zone, Ontological Anarchy, Poetic Terrorism is a book by anarchist writer Hakim Bey published in 1991 by Autonomedia.
It is composed of three sections, "Chaos: The Broadsheets of Ontological Anarchism," "Communiques of the Association for Ontological Anarchy," and "The Temporary Autonomous Zone. " Themes The book describes the socio-political tactic of creating temporary spaces that elude formal structures of control. The essay uses various examples from history and philosophy, all of which suggest that the best way to create a non-hierarchical system of social relationships is to concentrate on the present and on releasing one's own mind from the controlling mechanisms that have been imposed on it. In the formation of a TAZ, Bey argues, information becomes a key tool that sneaks into the cracks of formal procedures. A new territory of the moment is created that is on the boundary line of established regions. The Temporary Autonomous Zone. Bi 0214 - Avant garde (L') - Bianco : 100 ans de presse anarchis.

Although many Canadian companies had enjoyed enormous profits on World War I contracts, wages and working conditions were dismal and labour regulations were mostly non-existent. History Background The immediate post-war period in Canada was not a time of peace. The Canadian prime minister attended the conference at Versailles and was concerned solely for his government, due to the Russian revolution that began more than a year before the settlement and concern that it would potentially spread to North America. Canada’s large immigrant population was thought to hold strong Bolshevist leanings. Cause From wages to the ability to strike On May 13, City Council gathered again to review the proposed agreement issued by the strikers.
