Tunisia: resistance, revolution, repression

Channel 4 News is currently liveblogging events in Tunisia, where the popular revolt appears to be growing and threatening key sites of power like state television. The government and parliament have both been disbanded.

For understanding the dramatic events in Tunisia I highly recommend two articles by SOAS student activist Joseph Daher, both published at Counterfire in the last few days:
Tunisia and Algeria: the wind of anger rises
Gunfire in Tunis: Protests and repression continue

There will be a solidarity protest in London on Monday, followed by a public meeting (at University of London Union) on Thursday.

Protest at Tunisian Embassy in London - Monday 17 January, 2.30pm - see HERE

Public meeting in solidarity with Tunisia uprising - Thursday 20 January, 7.30pm - see HERE
