There were similar uprisings in Saudi Arabia last year. I commented on them. Predictably, the mass media never picked it up. As far as Americans are concerned, nothing's different.
Post a link to the board, maybe the bloggers can bring some news to the global consciousness..
Here's my writings on the matter. It was the first protest in Riyadh in modern history, and yet it barely got any attention in the U.S. Notice that the story I linked to is from the BBC.
This is one of the reasons that I want people to explore the Net more.. we have to get people out of this myopic view of news, of the world.
