The Revolution Shake

Despite ongoing problems in Tunisia, there’s still opportunities to be subversive in the face of ongoing censure.

Cue the Harlem Shake anywhere, everywhere:

…to show but a few.

The dance meme is being acted out all over the country, in classrooms, living rooms, avenues and offices.

And with the dour Minister of Education, Abdellatif Abed’s order for an investigation of the students engaged in one public Harlem Shake, the action gains impetus and significance.

The revolution is evolving and enduring in increasingly creative ways.
