The extraordinary events following the sacrifice of the young unemployed Tunisian Mohamed Bouazizi that led to Ben Ali’s flight and set off the political processes and movements of the "Arab spring". Social networks, the trade union movement, lawyers, the working class youth and community groups have had a major role in structuring and organising the burst of anger of the Tunisian people. These elements will be analysed considering the genealogy of the battles and of the organizational forms set up by the people against the regime. An analysis of the future of the movement that is shaking the world will follow.
