He just wanted to make a living…

Instead, he started the Arab Spring.

Tariq Mohamad Bouazizi sold fruits and vegetables from a pushcart in Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia. He couldn't afford the time (142 days to complete 54 procedural steps ) or the money ($3,233 – more than he made in a year) to register his business legally. He was Locked Out of the system.

Like the vast majority of people in the Middle East, he ran his business extra-legally and dealt with harassment from corrupt officials. On the fateful day of Dec. 17, 2010, his run-in with officials and resultant death sent shockwaves across the Middle East, plunging the region into strife and conflict as millions demanded change.

Discover the Roots of the Arab Spring - the story of Tariq Mohamad Bouazizi.
