Tunisia – protests Feb. 20

This is an update to the LSW Tunisia page

AFP reports that thousands demonstrated against the post-Ben Ali government and ends the report with this quote:

“We are against Ghannouchi’s government because our revolution has led to nothing with Ghannouchi, this is Ben Ali’s team and it has changed nothing,” said one of the demonstrators, teacher Samia Mahfoudh, 50. “It’s a bluff.”
“They are taking us for fools. All the members of the government and the regional councils have been elected by the former regime, the constitution has been reformed by the former regime. The RCD wants to sow terror,” said another protestor, Sami Ben Moumen, referring to the officially suspended former ruling party.”
