Has Tunisia's Govt Turned Its Back on the Revolution's Martyrs?

This follows protests that erupted in December 2018 when a 32-year-old journalist set himself on fire in a call for revolt after he expressed his frustration at unemployment and the unfulfilled promises of Tunisia's Arab Spring revolution.
