Violent protests after first Arab Spring Election in Tunisia

Well the first ever elections in the so-called Arab Spring have been held in Tunisia, and guess what? Violent protests have erupted after the results were announced with the winning party scrapping dozens of seats won by the opposition.

Police used tear gas against the protesting masses in the very town where unrest started, triggering the widespread Arab uprisings.

The moderate Muslim winners of the poles stated emphatically that there would be no ban on bikini’s and alcohol, but we must wait and see just how moderate they are and closely observe if yet another uprising is underway.

I am so excited by this all that I am considering starting my very own uprising.
