    It’s been exactly ten years since #Tunisian street vendor Mohamed #Bouazizi set himself on fire in protest at police harassment, sparking the Tunisian revolution and what became the Arab Spring. But even today, Tunisia’s #economy remains extremely fragile, with hundreds of thousands of graduates without work and the Covid-19 pandemic making matters worse. Our correspondents travelled to several regions of the country and found that the demands of the revolution – social justice, employment and dignity – remain unfulfilled.
