This is crazy. Wikileaks leaked info on how corrupt their president, Zine el-Abidine, was. After that people showed up in the streets in huge numbers, police tried to disperse them but couldn't. Some street vendor even lit himself on fire to protest the police mistreatment during these protests. Eventually the president fled and their Prime Minister, Mohamed Ghannouchi, said that "as the president of the republic is unable to exercise his functions for the time being, I have assumed, starting now, the powers of the president."
Now that's badass, next step is to overthrow the corrupt in the US, who's with me?
Here's a great montage of pictures from the revolution, check it out.
