Protests continue, though according to my sources, they are stronger than last week. Teachers are also on strike. College of Applied Sciences and College of Technology are back to classes after over a week of being on strike (the students). Dhofar University students were also on strike.
My sources noted that most of the protesters at the general 'political' strike were from the mountains. Evidently, other tribes aren't involved (town people, bedouins, etc). Wonder why...? Reminds me of the Dhofar Rebellion (1962-1975).
I still think that the protesters should calm down a bit and give the Sultan some time to study their needs. Quick solutions won't last. He's done a lot and to echo the Grand Mufti's message yesterday, CHANGE NEEDS TIME.
PS (pray for Libya - the fact that seven countries have gone to war to bring down one man is insane)
