Oops. Looks like today's huge gathering for Friday prayers at the "People's Square" in Salalah (protest headquarters) ended up with the crowds deciding to go on a major strike tomorrow. The person who gave the sermon, Sheikh Nasser Sakroon encouraged everyone in the public and private sector to go on strike.
I think it's extremely selfish in some ways. How do they expect His Majesty the Sultan to make 360 degree changes in this country in a matter of weeks?!!! What will a strike do?! If I were the 'Collective Brain' of the protesters, I'd for example set a date in June and ask for changes before then, on the condition that everyone goes on strike on that date if the list of demands haven't been met. Many of the demands are ridiculous and most of them take TIME. In fact, the whole bloody situation is ridiculous.
