A number of protesters tried on Friday night, November 30, 2018, to reach the 4th circle in the vicinity of the Prime Ministry, but Jordanian security forces cordoned off the streets.

Roya’s reporter at the scene said that demonstrators tried to move to the 4th circle from the courtyard of Jordan Hospital, but security forces and gendarmerie personnel prevented them from reaching the roundabout.

Previously, the Governor of Amman, Saad Shihab, said that the protests and marches on the 4th circle are "forbidden" by an official decision.

The protesters denounced the policies of Omar Razzaz’s government, and the Jordanian parties' abandonment of the protest, calling for the withdrawal of the income tax law, electronic crimes, release of speech detainees, and bring back bread subsidies.
