TS Update-(Friday Protests-Update)
It’s turning out to be yet another busy Friday. A couple of protests are taking place today. (1) Protest downtown (2) We are still monitoring the other and will post details once we have confirmed it.
(1) It’s called the Million people march for Tunisia. The purpose is to “unite to build our country, unite for the good of our people, unite to stop those who want to make the Tunisian revolution a failure” (translation). Seems positive but I would avoid going downtown today. (Update: This protest (poster on the left) did not materialize), as expected but there were several gatherings downtown.
(2) Salafists protest in front of U.S. embassy. (Update)
Right now things look great out here but it’s better to be informed. We look forward to writing some informative analysis on these new developments.
