En historisk dag (den 18.3.), ifølge statsminister Lars Løkke, (“vore udsendte soldater lægger vægt på opbakning”) da et enigt folketing lidt over midnat stemmer for dansk krigsdeltagelse mod Libyen.
En sorgens dag for nogle i Enhedslisten, da partiet for første gang stemmer for krig (se debatten nedenfor).

I Spanien starter oprørsbevægelsen Democracia real YA (= M15, fordi den startede 15 maj) (Indignados). Inspireret af folkelige oprør i Island og Egypten, omdøbes den centrale Plaza del Sol i Madrid til både Islands Plads og Tahrirpladsen.
Besættelsen ophæves den 7. juni.

Græske storstrejker, demonstrationer og protester på gaderne bryder ud i protest mod regeringens forsøg på nedskæringsaftaler (lån) med EU.

Til forskel for protestbevægelsen i 2010 og de 7 generalstrejker i løbet af året, er bevægelsen i 2011 mere præget af krav og former fra det arabiske forår (se linkbox) og den spanske oprørsbevægelse (se 15. maj ovenfor).
