I am guest hosting Al Jazeera’s social media and global news program The Stream later today. Most of the show will be devoted to the uprisings in Swaziland.

“Uprisings in Swaziland,” you ask? Indeed, Africa’s last remaining absolute monarchy is facing a serious fiscal crisis and people have been taking to the streets as of late.

Kudos to the folks at Al Jazeera Stream for actually devoting some serious time–and serious discussion–on this overlooked global story. Twitter users can ask questions during the show using the hashtag #ajstream.  The show is live at 3:30 EST today.  If you miss it, I’ll post the embed when it becomes available.

UPDATE: Here’s the broadcast:
