From the year that changed the world to a New Year with full of expectations and high hopes?

In Fanny Lulu's diary on January 7, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Time never hesitates to pass by and never stops. On the other hand The World FactBook has an extremely good memory to keep all the actions  being performed by human beings and the mother nature..

Just like the previous ‘Farewells’ i will mostly remember the heartbreaking tragedies & highlights of the ‘Year 2011’ and remind you some part of them below in order to be aware of who we are indeed as relating to what we do.

The Year 2011 was the year of the common people and the others who were under the control of external power and also opposition sides. They were the ones who walked the line of death against the dictatorships and bursting out their harassment because of the regimes which are miles away from the democracy. They were the people from different segments of society with revolting and rebellious heart. Arab Spring was the movement of freedom and democracy on the surface but also its colour was neither orange nor green. It had the colour of ‘Red’ and we knew that the revolutions were/are written by blood. In this year what we saw and heard is all about blood, tears and sad & real stories from the Middle East, Africa, Far East, Europe, Russia and even from the U.S but also rise of renaissance in the Middle East countries including North Africa.

You can ask me why do i always see the dark side of the moon? My answer is a never ending question, could you point at me a concrete truth regarding that the 7 billion people are indeed glad with their lives? If you say that no need them to be happy in the world, i can see your point of view on life…But there is such a thing as truth that a negligible quantityof this number is rich, happy and careless about the rest of the world and we, human being, must know that ‘’1 in 7 chance that person will be born hungry. Nearly 1 billion people in the world go to bed hungry each night.’’ WFP

Let’s make a rough turn to the question: What did The Arab World gain and lose at the end of The Arab Spring? Algeria lost his Mohammed Bouazizi who was a young man at the age of 27 and street vendor to make a living for himself and his family. How easy to say that he caughed fire and burned himself saying that ‘if you don’t see me, i’ll burn myself!’in order to prevent the police coming over him to take his goods from him. It was initial fire of the Arab Spring and Bouazizi died in pain soon after setting himself on fire in protest. On the following days we witnessed that The President Zine El Abidin Ben Ali and The PM Ghannouchi were ousted from their duities. Nowadays New Algerian president, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, promised to make the constitutional reforms. In details, Algeria seemed to have the pluralistic democracy and  it cost thousands of people’s lives and million dollars.

Just after the Tunisia, Arab Tsunami spread its wave to Egypt and afterwards we watched nearly the same protests, crackdowns and violent clashes in Libya, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain and the other Middle East countries. Likewise it was called ‘Facebook Revolution’: “I’ve always said that if you want to liberate a society just give them the Internet,” said activist and Google marketing manager Wael Ghonim. http://www.globalnews.ca/2011/arabspring/

Besides these all, in 2011, the western world dealt with the economic crises which tended to disrupt the European Union. Particularly Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland and Italy had to declare that they were financially in huge debt burden.

The activists and the common people had a start of  ‘OCCUPY WALL STREET’ movement in  New York because of the unfair distrubition of income, economic inequalities and fast-growing scarp between poor and rich. The activists set up their tents and thus occupied the well known squares of the big cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Greece, London, Madrid, Sydney and so on… According to me, we could have a big chance to select the most democratic countries in the world which let them organise and protest with their meaningful banners. http://occupywallst.org/

What happened more? NATO troops collaborated with Libyan opposite groups and they arrested The Ousted Leader Muammar Gaddafi alive & killed him later without judgement. NATO troops also killed many civilians during the operations as they did in Afghanistan.

Osama Bin Laden was killed by the US Forces in Pakistan without judgment and Obama declared proudly that the world was saved from The (Tailormade) Frankenstein by adding that ‘’justice is done…’’ https://newspool.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/obama-vs-osama/

Japan was terribly hurt by the destructive Eartquake and Tsunami on the 11th of March and soon after that it has been started to be discussed about the safety and necessity of the Nuclear Power Plants in the world. Photos can tell you everything much better than me. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/03/pictures/110315-nuclear-reactor-japan-tsunami-earthquake-world-photos-meltdown/

The worst drought and famine disaster in half a century hit the East African country Somalia and 750.000 Somalian died because of the disaster which we, rest of the world, support indirectly…”Droughts will happen. They always will, but they don’t have to be disasters. They can be managed,” Oxfam’s Philippa Crosland-Taylor said in neighbouring Kenya.

‘Right wing Christian Terrorist’ Anders Behring Breivik bombed government buildings in Oslo, which resulted in eight deaths. Just after the blast he arrived at a youth camp in police uniform and opened fire on 69 young people with full of dreams, hopes and loves to life…A few months later the mass killer was declared that he has been found criminally insane. https://newspool.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/bigger-crimes-smaller-fines/?preview=true&preview_id=648&preview_nonce=3419afa04f

US declared that Irak War came to an end as of november 13…(???)

Israel released 1027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Israeli captive Gilad Shalid.

*Palestine  Government applied Unesco in order to have the full membership as a free state and the application was approved 37 years later. The Palestinian Leader Mahmoud Abbas has also submitted their request for the UN membership to UN commitee. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-15033357

North Korean ‘Dear Leader’ Kim Jong II died of heart attack due to physical and mental over-work and the world opinion have been curious and concerned about his son who took the place of his ‘God Father’ whether he would have the key to getting better results for the public prosperity and national happiness or keep on challenging the world by the nuclear weapons.

In 2011, unfortunately domestic violence against women and waves of detensions & long prosecution process which the journalists, writers,  military officers and academics have been arrested, carried on and it has still being discussed about the expression of freedom of thought and peculiarly ‘democracy’ by the close followers and public opinion in Turkey. Furthermore, 7.1 Mw earthquake in Van province took 604 lives and left up to 40.000 people homeless.

I can continue typing the events which took unforgettable place on my mind but i don’t want to bore you with recalls but i need to emphasise what my points were when i looked back to the recent past and i will appreciate if you add more headlines in addition to my article in order to be aware of our pictures in the world’s memory…

I wish you a magical year with full of hopes, peace, happiness, justice, democracy and equality and…(Please fill in the blanks..) A year in which the International Law is not violated by the Global Monsters.

Thanks for reading my ‘long’ post and being a part of our dream world.

Kind Regards…
