Penantian 20 Tahun di Tunisia

"Today in Tunis people have said their last word. The people want Ben Ali out, along with his corrupt government which has no credibility," said Mokhtar Aidoudi, a lawyer who was among the protesters. "We want to be able to express ourselves, a free press," said a 20-year-old medical student from Sousse.

Khadija Sharif, a sociologist and university lecturer in Tunis, said: "For years, Ben Ali set about killing off political opposition parties, weakening and dividing them. The street protests are spontaneous, not a movement with a leader. Guardian
