The Tunisian revolution;

Development, Liberty, Citizenship, Dignity

The reasons behind the revolution

For decades, human dignity has been scorned by the ruling powers in Tunisia ◙ ◙ ◙ ◙

Liberties were scorned Socio-economic rights were confiscated Corruption was built into the power system The enrichment of the mafia was generalised

In other words, daily crimes were organised against the citizens


How did the Ben Ali regime handle the revolution ? Fire, Mohamed Bouazizi was the straw that broke the camel’s back : ◙ His immolation sparked the start of the revolution; ◙ The peaceful protests of young people was launched on 17 December 2010 ; ◙ The initial reaction of the government was to marginalise the events; ◙ But the demonstrations grew as the number of victims increased; ◙ After 17 days of peaceful protests in the area of Sidi Bouzid, the protests reached the neighbouring provinces.


How did the Ben Ali regime react in the face of the revolution ?

◙ As usual, the regime intensified its terrorising actions by killing more and more people as was the case in Kasserine and Tala; ◙ The young people’s peaceful revolution intensified;

◙ Barriers ceded, the revolution generalisted and the dictorial regime of General Ben Ali fell on 14 January 2011.


Victims in numbers During the peaceful revolution: ◙ Amongst civilians, 300 dead and thousands injured following shootings on crowds;

◙ 0 victims agmonst the authorities;

These results show the contrasting attitudes: - peaceful demonstrators; - brutal authorities.


Conclusions This revolution was led by the Tunisian civil society - It organises itself, through the Republic, to carry out its project; - It is dedicated to participate in the reconstruction of the country by offering concrete propositions; - It offers its peaceful revolution to the heritage of humanity.

The Center for Strategic Development Studies SBZ is a NGO In partnership with citizens, it seeks to: ◙ identify and formulate specific needs; ◙ suggest solutions; ◙ offer the implementation and follow-up of propositions made 6
