Insaf Rabadi


Hermna... Hermna... Hermna, but graying did not occupy our home; humiliation did not occupy our soul. Hermna... But we didn’t fall. Harmna... But we never get tired, and we didn’t bow.

When this old man shouted in Tunisia, Hermna (we have got old), addressing young people by saying: "you can give your country more than we did, because we have got old waiting for this historical moment", the story of a generation has been epitomized. These truthful words reflect the thirst for freedom, and also reflect the enormous suffering that faced the Arab generations.

This study aims at highlighting this oppression, suffering and frustration within those years of waiting had its own aesthetic prospective, which had created a whole generation seeking for freedom, and as the moment comes; this generation had shouted loudly trying to capture this opportunity, urging young people to seize it.
