AMMAN - Urban centres across the Kingdom were largely free of demonstrations on Friday as concerns over inclement weather forecasts lead to the lowest turnouts in weekly protests since the launch of Jordan’s pro-reform movement over one year ago.
Downtown Amman was free of demonstrations on Friday after activists withdrew their calls for weekly protests in the face of forecasts of temperatures as low as 1 degrees and snow for several parts of the country.
While Amman-based activists were no-shows on Friday, pro-reformers hit the streets in Salt, Karak and Tafileh in a bid to pick up the slack and sustain the fading year-old protest movement.
In a series of marches held under the slogan “you will not terrorise us,” independent and youth activists braved winter weather conditions to demand elected governments and greater efforts to combat corruption they claim has cost the country “millions.”
