Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak finally stepped down last Friday as the largest pro-democracy protest in the country's 18-day uprising threatened to take place. Tunisia's former president is also in exile. The situation in Egypt, however, is far from over as many workers have gone on strike with their demands and the future of the country's leadership remains unclear. But several other nations, such as Bahrain, Libya, Yemen, Iran, Jordan and Lebanon are following in Egypt's and Tunisia's footsteps by taking to their own streets, decrying their governments and demanding change, even at the cost of their lives.
Thousands of protesters in Bahrain attended the funerals of the first martyrs for their cause on Friday. Rather than deterring the protesters, some are saying they are willing to be martyrs themselves. To them, the rights and freedoms of their people are worth the price of their lives.
