This has become the theme of the nationwide protests in Tunisia which continue unabated. 'Enough' refers to the high levels of unemployment in the country, the pervasive corruption, especially of the two ruling families and the decades of seething repression which have kept Zine Ben Ali in power now for twenty-three years.
And with that, protestors in different parts of the country are tearing down President Zine Ben Ali's portrait, a harbinger of things to come perhaps. Triggered originally on December 17, 2010 by the suicide of a 26 year old university graduate who had his unauthorized fruit and vegetable stand confiscated in Sidi Bouzid- and who soaked himself with gasoline and lit a match- the protests have only intensified, despite government attempts to suppress them.
