Birthplace of Tunisia’s revolution

Posted: January 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

Sidi Bouzid is the Tunisian town that sparked the nationwide protests that eventually toppled the rule of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Just a month ago, protesters brought the area outside the city hall to a standstill, following the suicide of Mohamed Bouazizi, who set himself on fire in despair with a government that constantly failed to meet the needs of its population. The area has returned to normal, but people say the journey for change is not yet over. Al Jazeera’s Ayman Mohyeldin reports from Sidi Bouzid.
