    FILE - In this June 24, 2011 file photo, children hold onto a banner as they join protesters demanding an end to government corruption during a demonstration by opposition parties in front of the prime minister's office in Amman, Jordan. The unrest of the Arab Spring has thrown much of the Middle East into turmoil, but a handful of countries have found ways to prevent or calm the anger of the streets. At the heart of the political standoff in Jordan is a half-British king and darling of Western governments who is trying to avoid the tumult. Arabic writings reads, "Jordan National opposition."

    A girl selling peanuts and mangoes watches the hip-hop group Y'en a marre during a community concert in the impoverished Dalifort neighbourhood of Senegal's capital Dakar, June 18 2011. With nearly 40 local chapters formed across the country since January, "Y'en a marre" is focusing on encouraging youths who have turned 18 since the last election in 2007 to register for the February 2012 vote -- and to vote against incumbent Abdoulaye Wade. Using a mix of concerts, demonstrations and stomping the streets in black T-shirts emblazoned with their name, the group has been hard at work raising youth awareness of government corruption and mismanagement -- and urging Senegalese to act instead of just complain over cups of 'ataya' tea.
