On November 6, alongside Iranians and Egyptians, a Tunisian labor activist (a teacher) stopped by Occupy Wall Street to offer his support of the movement.

Jamel Bettaieb is a Tunisian activist and labor leader from the birth city of the Arab Spring - Sidi Bouzid. He recently won the 2011 NED Democracy award. Check out this short video of some of his remarks.
