    Tunis - 14 January Pacific protest day 1 Vs Police repression


    14 January 2011:


    These are photos and videos I made during the protest and pacific demonstration that gathered Thousands and Thousands of tunisia in the main "Habib Bourghiba" Avenue in Tunis , and mainly in front of the Interior ministry:

    The slogans Where clear:

    -Ben Ali out ("dégage")

    -His Family out (dégage)

    -his party RCD out (dégage)

    -Ministry of interior and police, you are the "terrorists" , you have to be judged.


    Untill now, January 20th, only Ben ali and his family (almost all) fled out the country,

    Prime Minister Ghanouchi- who was Ben Ali prime minister for 12 years - is still Prime Minister in the "transitional" government, which main goal would be to prepare the next democratic Elections in 45 / 60 daus or 6 months..

    The main ministries : Finance, Interior, Defense, and Foreign affairs are held by Ben Ali's party member (the main party in tunisia)

    Demonstrations against the Party are continouesly organised  despite the "efforts" and "Openess" of the new transitional government - nobody trust them anymore as they are always too late in their decisions, and areholding on so much to the power:

    Demonstrations of:

    -Monday 18th (violently repressed despite huge media/ photographs / journalist on place)

    -Tuesday 19 (held with no violence from police)
