2011 Is the Year of Change

There are some news that you may have not noticed and then there are some news that you must have taken a sabbatical to a remote Monogolian village not to have heard of.

Having reported on the fashion trends during London's Fashion Week, I decide to speak about another kind of trend - public revolution.

Tunisia started it, Egypt followed and now the focus is on Libya. It seems like this surge of civil resistance is increasing and working I might add -  Hosseini Mubarak's 30 year regime has been finally put to an end.

With a 30% population of the country working for 30 US dollars a month, and the richest 20% of the population own 40% of the country's wealth this was long overdue if you ask me.

Now it's Libyas turn. Another dictator, Mummar Gaddafi has given a long mindless ranting about how he will "die a martyr in his country" and refuses to resign. Looks like someone has officially lost the plot.

2011 - blame it on the economy, people's awareness, like the famous Greek writer and revolutionist Antonis Samarakis said, lets all wake up from lethargy of the monotonic system!
