World Social Forum: Tunisia 2015

This year's World Social Forum looks at justice, equality and dignity in the Middle East and beyond. Hosted in the cradle of the Arab Spring, Tunis, the forum kicked off Tuesday with a protest in solidarity of last week's Bardo museum attack which left over 20 dead.
