Was ist aus der Hochburg des tunesischen Aufstands geworden? Reportage in El Watan, 08.08.2012: “Die tunesische Nationalgarde lässt die Schmuggler auf der Landstraße nach Kasserine in Ruhe, wo sie zu etwas Geld kommen. Die Verkäufer des algerischen Benzins sind zahlreicher als die Grillstände geworden. (…) In Tunesien macht die informelle Ökonomie 30% des BSP aus, hier mehr als 50 %.”
