السلام عليكم Peace be upon you. My name is Dora and I'm 24 years old, half Tunisian and half Finnish girl, living in Finland. Married to a wonderful man. This blog is my personal diary. It consists of my life, thoughts, opinions and quotes that I identify with, news I read, pictures I take and much more. This blog has no label on it. It's just my personal space. I warmly welcome you to follow if you're willing to respect that. I study photography. Please, do not steal my pictures, or use them without crediting, for they are my work.

Why did the uprisings that brought down governments across North Africa and the Middle East fail to materialise in Algeria? Was it, as the government would claim, because of the regime’s ‘progressive leadership’ or has something more sinister and complex been going on? Opponents and human rights activists say it has more to do with a wary population traumatised by the country’s violent past and and living in fear of its secret police. People & Power wanted to find out more, but getting into Algeria is difficult - not least because Al Jazeera has been denied official access to the country since 2004. When our requests for journalist visas were ignored, our filmmakers managed to get in unofficially and were able to work discreetly. Algeria: The revolution that never was reveals what they found.
I found this highly interesting and worth of watching.
