Youth group challenges PM to resign

Thursday 24 March 2011

Hundreds of Jordanians set up a protest camp in a square in the capital Amman today demanding the removal of the prime minister.

The 500 protesters appeared to be mostly university students or unemployed graduates who had met through Facebook last month to launch a group called the Jordanian Youth Movement.

The group’s spokesman Ziad al-Khawaldeh said that the protesters would remain outdoors until Prime Minister Marouf al-Bakhit resigns.

Other demands include dissolving the parliament, dismantling the feared intelligence department and giving greater powers to the people.

The group changed its name to “Youth of March 24” yesterday, marking what members said was the start of an open-ended demonstration, and hailed the “Jordanian revolution.”
