The Arab Revolution erupted in a country that no one would expect: a political earthquake that shook the whole world.

Tunisia appeared to be a quiet and stable country, where life seemed pleasant. However, most Tunisians turned a blind eye to the corruption of their rulers and the systematic looting of their country’s resources, intimidated and tarnished by the regime’s cruelty and depravation.

Ben Ali was not facing any immediate threat and things seemed to be business as usual. He was even preparing a national campaign to become President for life! Nobody could anticipate the explosion that would burst from the chilly Tunisian winter, until that Friday of December 17th, 2011.
