Fellow Expat I hope you are all safe and doing well in the safety of your homes. As the person responsible for security at the American School I can not begin to tell you how I feel. Still, life goes on and we must learn from these experiences.
In my opinion Tunisia will never be the same again. Tunisia has lost in so many ways.
Expats the time for urgency is now! By urgency I don’t mean panic instead now is the time to put your personal security on top of your to do list. I want to be absolutely clear: YOU CAN NOT TRUST THE TUNISIAN SECURITY FORCES.
Your safety is dependent on your actions. Your friends, co-workers, neighborhood, etc.. they are the ones that you have to make sure you can rely on. Most importantly you are the hero you’ve been waiting for.
I am really not in the state to continue writing but I will have lots more to share in the coming days. For now take the time to evaluate your security.
Take some time to:
- Make sure your communication is 100% functional. Contact numbers etc.
- Refresh your emergency setup. Make sure you are setup for possible curfews etc.
- Look over your travel documents.
The government could easily step up their efforts and things could be fine, but we have to plan for a challenging time ahead.
