Sidi Bouzid a year after Tunisia's uprising

Al Jazeera returns to the city where the so-called Arab Spring began exactly one year ago.



    The uprising in Tunisia began exactly a year ago when young fruit seller Mohammad Bouazizi set himself on fire to protest against injustice and humiliation.

    Now, protesters have gathered outside the governor's office in the Tunisian city of Sidi Bouzid, poor, and very angry.

    According to one protester, the people of Sidi Bouzid are marginalised and feel nothing has been achieved since the uprising began.

    Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports from Sidi Bouzid.
