Around the world today, many people are still not happy with the way that their government is being run. One example is in Hong Kong, China. At the moment, China's form of government is communism but many of its citizens are clamoring for change. Since September 28, pro-democracy protesters have been blocking the streets surrounding main government buildings. The protests are mainly student led but protesters of all ages all want the same thing: change. In Italy, citizens are not protesting for an issue quite so large. Tens of thousands of Italians in Rome alone are protesting the simple idea of a new law. This law is know as the Jobs Act and it would be changing labor laws so that it would be easier for companies to get rid of employees, among other things. Although government officials insist that the law will be a good thing, Italian citizens are not so sure. In Rome, the protesters threw eggs at government buildings and unfurled a protest banner at the top of the ancient Colosseum. All across Italy, hundreds of thousands of people are protesting. These two protests are very similar to what happened in colonial America, citizens standing up for what they believe is right, and clamoring for something to change.
