Tunisia's revolutionary fire: Fresh protests, seven years after Arab Spring

It's been seven years since the uprising that saw a wind of change blow across North Africa. The Arab Spring began with the exit of Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in Tunisia. Nine governments later, there seems to be no answer to the problems that led to the rise of anger and action that saw Ben Ali kicked out of power. The people who have been protesting in the streets across Tunisia for the past week are essentially complaining about the same things: no jobs, no money, no future.
