This Wisconsin governor is really pissing me off with his anti-union legislation. We should get together all the teachers across America via Facebook and get TUNISIA on his ass!

The Tunisian revolution is an intensive campaign of civil resistance, including a series of street demonstrations taking place in Tunisia. The events began in December 2010 and led to the ousting of longtime President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in January 2011. Street demonstrations and other unrest have continued to the present day.

The protests inspired similar actions throughout the Arab world; the Egyptian revolution began after the events in Tunisia and also led to the ousting of Egypt's longtime president Hosni Mubarak; furthermore, uprisings in Bahrain, Syria and Yemen and major protests have also taken place in Algeria, Jordan, Morocco, Israel's borders, Iraq, Mauritania and also Libya - where a full-scale revolution has broken out - as well as elsewhere in the wider North Africa and Middle East.

tunisia is a nation that actually has a pretty grand history, as a powerful outpost during the reigns of the greek, roman, and ottoman empires. the french eventually took over, the place is most famous for the wwii battles fought here. currently, its a single party state that actually has some wealth in the coastal cities, espcially due to oil. in the interior, the famous nomadic berbers still live.

Tunisia is a relatively small northern African country with very limited natural resources compared to its nabors. The capital is Tunis and main other cities are Sousse and Sfax.
The country was under Cartagian, Roman Ottoman and French rule to name a few. This explains the omni presence of vocabulary from all over the Mediterranean in their spoken language which is more a variant of Arabic than a dialect.
The main industries are tourism, textile, IT and agriculture. But when that wasn't going too well for them they went crazy bat shit on their long running president and ousted him to some barren Saoudi castle.
The country's been a central piece to the social movements that stirred in North Africa and the middle East back in 2011. What was called the Jasmin revolution brought democracy to Tunisia, a democracy then again the military to power in Egypt, and civil war to Libya, Syria and Yemen.
The Tunisian people are a proud people and would often brag about their long and grandiose history. They're particularly proud of Cartage. Secularity is remarkably very palpable for a Muslim majority country. Tunisia's rank amongst the countries that drink the most alcohol per capita is undisputable.
The beach is the best with very few tourists on the northern western Tunisian cost.
