The name adopted in Tunisia was the Dignity Revolution, which is a translation of the Arabic name for the revolution ثورة الكرامة (Thawrat al-Karāmah). The Tunisian revolution has also been considered the first of a series of revolutions named the Arab Spring. However, you can read it in Algerian history going back to 800 BC when the Berber First Nations were first oppressed, and the Berbers have sought Justice and remained with dignity for 2000 years.
