Protests return to Tunisia a year later

The problem is clearly not just a matter of human rights and formal democracy. That also maybe but it is clear that the problem facing all the Mediterranean Basin, Arab, Latin or other, is a problem of jobs and workers' dignity. 

And the only way to solve it is true socialism: with job sharing and wealth sharing among all and no more inequality and injustice.

Meanwhile class war will persist, because it is here to remain.

Tunisia has seen intermittent protests since the elections that gave power to the Islamists (conservatives) but now clashes have increased and affect the very town that sparked the Arab Spring, Sidi Bouzid, the center of a miner and working class hardened district.
