Click here to read a take on the Tunisian bread riots by Marwan M. Kraidy, from his book The Naked Blogger of Cairo. The referenced chapter looks at the indelible ties between bread and political and cultural identity, sovereignty, and basic human rights. 
It ends with the description of Captain Khobz (Captain Bread), a modern day superhero who fights for human necessities. The last line reads, "If bread making is one of the most fundamental ways to turn nature into culture, bread activism is a way of turning culture into politics."
