Tunisian Revolution

Getting to hear the viewpoint of a foreigner stuck inside a country going through a particularly violent revolution isn't something that happens everyday.

Tunisia is currently revolting after a young man was shot dead for protesting against the government, it seems that the people were so oppressed that it was the final straw and mass protests started, leading to police brutality to an extreme that makes the recent London Student protest 'kettling' look like a fun afternoon.

Methalif is written from an insiders viewpoint and it's a great read. An insight and writing style completely different to that from the proper journalists who are reporting on the revolt.

I know this isn't graphic design news, but it's a pretty incredible thing that is happening and an interesting read for sure.
