On Saturday, November 19th, a ceremony organized by the Independent High Authority for the Elections (ISIE) to commemorate the martyrs of Tunisia’s Revolution turned into a protest in Tunis. The organizers were forced to suspend the ceremony.
Protesters prevented Kamal Jendoubi, the president of ISIE, to give the opening speech. Among the protesters were families of the martyrs and injured people who refused to accept the symbolic recognition of ISIE.
Protestors called for the prosecution of their children’s killers before commemorating their death.
A sit-in will be organized on Tuesday, November 22nd outside the Chamber of Deputies in Bardo, where the open ceremony of the Constituent Assembly will take place.
As a reaction an appeal has been launched to establish a National Committee representing the families of martyrs.
