Social Protest

Here is a good overview of the protests that are shaking the world and a prediction of more to come. The interview is with Gerald Celente.

My favourite phrase:
When the money on the top stops flowing down to the man on the street, the blood starts flowing in the streets.

While I don't agree with his specific "predictions" (he is no better than most other prognosticators), I do think he has the zeitgeist of the time correct: we are in an era of social upheaval because of a failing economic system with the root cause being a growing economic inequality and a growing marginalization of the bottom 50%.
