In Tunis suburb, a revolutionary demand: jobs, not freedoms Here in Tunisia’s own “Paris suburbs,” the unemployed, unrepresented, and unheard young men who led the Tunisian revolution have a message that is both simple and provocative. “We don’t want freedoms, we want jobs,” says Yassin Ben, 24. In neighborhoods like this one at the edge of the capital, Tunis, the very same conditions that led to Tunisia’s 2011 revolution – unemployment, marginalization, urban migration, and police harassment – persist.
