In Europe and Asia, the Middle East and Latin America, states are facing mass protests like ‘Maidan’ in Ukraine. This statement was made by UN Secretary General António Guterres.
In this regard, he called on governments to listen to people.
“We can see waves of protests around the world: in the Middle East and Latin America, in Europe and Asia,” said Guterres. “I urge leaders to listen to the real problems of real people.”
According to him, a variety of reasons make people go to protests, but there are general characteristics in these manifestations. In particular, the UN Secretary General pointed to the “lack of trust between the people and political elites.” “In addition, the threat to the existing social contract is growing,” admitted Guterres.
As News Front previously reported, protests are currently taking place in Hong Kong, Algeria, Greece, Zimbabwe, Iraq, Lebanon and Chile. In addition, demonstrations of “yellow vests” continue in France, and in Ukraine, radicals through protests try to disrupt the process of a peaceful settlement of the conflict in Donbass.Jihadists trying to take revenge from the Syrian army in Latakia
