Tunisia: Tunisia, stagnant, future of justice still not in sight In Tunis, on 14 January 2011, thousands of ordinary people packed Habid Bourguiba Avenue in the Tunisian capital. Men and women, students, street cleaners, doctors and lawyers at the massive doors of the powerful Interior Ministry shouted together for then President Ali to step down.

A demonstrator said: "We hope that this is the beginning of democracy. We hope that we can elect our president, not someone parachuted from outside. We don't want food, we don't want jobs, we want him out, just get out, him, his family and these people. That's it."
