Second episode - Redeyef : Watch now!

This episode follows an international solidarity caravan to the second stop of the trip: Redeyef, a marginalised and polluted town in #Tunisia's phosphate mining basin. Back in 2008, it was the site of the longest popular uprising in Tunisia's modern history, violently repressed by Ben Ali's regime. These events are considered to be the first spark that ignited the 2011 revolution. Seven years after, the extractivist model of development still means resource pillaging, unemployment and environmental degradation in the region.

Third Episode - Oum Laarayes, to be released on 19 Nov:

Oum Laarayes, another pollutted town in Tunisia's phosphate mining basin.

Fourth Episode - Jemna, to be released on 26 Nov:

Jemna, an oasis in southern Tunisia where an inspiring land struggle is taking place.
