Press release

Following the serious events currently shaking the country, the signatory civil society organizations declare the following: We are following with great concern the protest movement of job seekers which has set the governorate of Kasserine ablaze since January 17 and which has since spread to several other regions of the country. We express our disappointment at the inability of the various governments, which have succeeded one another since 2011, to draw up an economic policy in phase and in coherence with the demands at the origin of the popular uprisings which have crossed Tunisia since 2008 and which have was at the origin of the revolution of 2011. After a long wait which lasted five years and especially after the elections of 2014, the political class showed its inertia in front of legitimate aspirations of dignity and social justice. Taken by its division, this political class as well as state institutions have allowed corruption to spread to the detriment of a healthy economy that supports social balance and peace. As defenders of human rights, including economic and social rights, we give our full support to the unemployed as well as to young people in precarious situations who express their discontent through public and peaceful demonstrations. We call on the demonstrators to avoid any form of violence and to be vigilant against any attempt to “take over” the movement of peaceful and legitimate protest against the unemployed by external parties whose sole objective is to destabilize the country. and to engage it in the path of violence and terror. We strongly condemn all acts of violence, attacks on law enforcement agencies, acts of vandalism against institutions and property, both public and private, as well as calls for hatred and destruction. Finally, we call for the adoption of an economic model whose objective is the reduction of regional disparities and social inequalities, in particular through the promulgation of laws and the establishment of mechanisms guaranteeing good governance, real democracy. participatory and decentralization of powers and socioeconomic structures in accordance with the new Constitution.
