Display your solidarity with Tunisia
- Abul-Qasim Al-Shabi
'Tunisia 2011: the people, with popular protest and civil disobedience, have overthrown a ruthless despot, chanting in the streets the words of the great Tunisian poet of the early twentieth century, Abul Qasim Al-Shabi.
Philosophy Football have produced this T-shirt to help promote solidarity, featuring the poetry in the original Arabic. With a shattered Tunisian flag, representing the structures of totalitarianism which divided their country for generations.
Get yours from HERE.'
Local readers (yes, both of you): please get along to this Thursday's Counterfire meeting in Newcastle on Tunisia: revolution at the crossroads. Recommended reading HERE and HERE.
