Saudi Arabia’s day of rage is scheduled for Friday, March 11.
Today it banned protests.
According to Gulf News, the ban was announced on state television, and security forces were told to use “all measures” to thwart them.
So far there have been a few protests, all of which are peaceful. And there’s some belief that perhaps the market is blowing Saudi Arabian fears out of proportion.
But when you stuff like this, you know they’re scared.
