ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the demonstrations in Tunisia in 2011 which are aimed to oust the government after it allegedly failed to prosecute supporters of former President Zayn al-Abidin Bin Ali. It says that protesters, who tried to gather infront of the Interior Ministry headquarters, were dispersed by using truncheons and teargas. It adds that the perceived anger of the protesters was due to the release of Ben Ali's justice minister and the failure to litigate the wife of the former President.
