My Arab Spring: Tunisia’s revolution was a dream

Although the country escaped utter chaos, the revolution’s cry for dignity and freedom was never answered.

"As a young person who took part in this revolution, I am not happy with its outcome. When young people took to the streets, they were asking for freedom, dignity and employment, but almost none of these objectives were fulfilled….When we join a revolution, we try to improve our situation, but I don’t think we succeeded in doing so in Tunisia. While Tunisia is better off than other countries like Syria or Libya, we didn’t really make a change. Just because we haven’t become embroiled in civil war does not mean that everything is better, or even OK. To me, success is linked to the fulfillment of the objectives of the revolution. Today, the cost of living has risen, and those who took to the streets asking for change have become desperate."
