Everyday on the CitizenTube Channel (and @CitizenTube on Twitter), along with our curation partners @storyful, we look at how the top news stories are covered on YouTube. Every week we'll post a weekly recap of the top news stories of the week:
We witnessed a massive peaceful protest sparked by local social media inthe north-eastern Chinese city of Dalian where people forced the closure of a coastal chemical plant that produced the hazardous compound paraxylene.
We watched another peaceful mass protest take shape in India formed by prominent social activist Anna Hazare who began a 15-day fast with thousands of followers seeking stronger legislation against corruption.
We observed the worsening famine in the Horn of Africa, with the Dadaab refugee complex in northeastern Kenya becoming the biggest in the world amid reports of food aid being stolen and sold on the black market.
