On Wednesday, streets in Tunisia witnessed massive protests against price increases and police brutality. Protests began the day before, and until now one person has died, 200 have been arrested, and fires have taken place in the streets.

The scene is similar to that of Tunisia’s first revolution; protests are held in the same squares and streets, and protests are led by youth who blocked roads and hurled stones at security forces.

In response, Tunisian president Beji Caid Essebsi stated that price increases are applied on the rich only not the poor, and that those protesting are people who want to harm the stability of the country. Similarly, the Nahda party (the Muslim Brotherhood) stated that it opposes the protests, claiming that those protesting are leftists.
