Tunisian protesters accuse President Kais Saied of orchestrating a power grab and harming the economy.

Anti-government protesters in Tunisia say the country’s president is reversing political freedoms gained more than a decade ago.

That’s when the Arab Spring led to the removal of former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali – and sparked uprisings across the Arab world.

Now, Tunisians accuse President Kais Saied of orchestrating a power grab and further weakening the country’s economy.

So, can their anger make a difference?

And how is it being viewed in the region?
