The protesters raised a black anarchist flag and unfurled banners, "Today, Tunisia, tomorrow the whole mi"" The Power of People's Councils in Tunisia "," Carthage is not destroyed, the Third Rome, wake up! "And chanted" We want changes, Carthage, Carthage "," What is Tunisia that Moscow would only give the right fight, "Dictatorship, poverty, common problem - a common struggle, "" Third Rome, Carthage, together, against the price hike, "Solidarity".

From the Stories of the picketers, December 17, in a small Tunisian town of Sidi Bou Zid, a graduate of the Faculty of Law, forced to run a street trader, committed self-immolation in protest against the inability to work and live.On the streets of the city came out of the crowd Tunisians who were dissatisfied with the economic policies of the dictator Ben Ali, which has led to mass unemployment and falling living standards.The next day, a riot of unemployed covered other cities.
