Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Indonesia in 1998 is the archetypal example of an IMF riot caused by a cessation of fuel subsidies. But there's also Ecuador in 2001. And that's just five seconds of Google; if I flipped through Globalization and its Discontents, I'd be able to recite a whole laundry list.

Of course, they aren't subsidising fuel for the poor any more...
