In my last post I mentioned that it would be interesting to see what impact the proposed January 25th workers strike would have on the county and now it appears that the strike is suspended. The politics of why it was suspended are well beyond the scope of this blog, as we primarily focus on giving Expats relevant & practical security advice. That being said it’s still interesting to note that the committee responsible for organizing the major strike is going to be active from January 25th until March 30th. One of their organizers has stated that after March 30th, if they’re not satisfied with the outcome, they will resume the general strike.
Protests & Strikes….
It’s fair to say that for the foreseeable future the threats and actions of mass protests & strikes will be a common occurrence not only in Tunisia, but also throughout the world. As Expats, our best option is to stay informed, connect with the places we visit, and use good personal safety measures. We have to make sense of all the information that’s out there for us to consume so that we can easily adapt to the ever-changing security landscape.
