The lack of attention to the recent events in Tunisia and Egypt is embarrassing,  though it has been difficult to find much footage and reporting which isn’t an enormously reductive representation of the situation. Because of the language barrier it’s difficult for us to know, but wherever government buildings and tanks are burning we can assume that more is happening than a mere protest.

Thus far people have set fire to government buildings, a police station, the ruling party HQ and converge on state TV offices. Intense rioting has continued for the last couple days.
