Tunisia: Behind Tunisia's 'Economic Miracle': Inequality and criminalization of protest
Tunisia’s ‘Economic Miracle’ has not benefited all, nor has it been matched by greater enjoyment of human rights. This was vividly illustrated during unrest in the south-west region of Gafsa in 2008, when peaceful protests by workers and unemployed youths were met with excessive use of force by security forces, arbitrary arrest, torture or other ill-treatment, and imprisonment after unfair trials. The protests were sparked by what was seen as an unfair recruitment process by the Gafsa Phosphate Company.
