On February 2, WL Central asked Will Saudi Arabia protest? and showed a video with Saudi Arabians doing just that, despite all protests and public assemblies being illegal in Saudi Arabia. Now another video has surfaced (below) along with a facebook page calling for a protest day on February 18th for “those who are unemployed, who demand better work conditions and better civil rights.” The facebook page is calling for:
– automobile factories to be opened in every major area and industrial training for young people.
– open factories and provide better training in the world of technology, programming and maintenance
– electrical plants in each region
– electric appliance factories to be opened.
– video game factories (like Playstation) to be opened in every area.
– food and dessert factories to be open in every region and jobs allocated for women.
– factories providing children’s clothing, shoes, mattresses and other works to provide jobs for women.
– an increase in minimum wage to 6,000 Rials and more employment of young people.
– open more schools
– election of the Shura Council
– an independent judiciary
– an electoral district governors of the people
– have no one above the law
The facebook page also notes that there are unemployed people in every home in Saudi Arabia and 76% of the population does not have affordable housing.
