Yesterday, December 30th, thirteen Tunisian civil society groups organized a march in observance of the National Day for Criminalizing the Normalization of Relations with Israel in front of the Constituent Assembly’s headquarters. These organizations called out, not only to the Tunisian government but to all Arab governments, against the normalization of engagement with Israel.

The march involved Tunisian citizens from a variety of age and social demographics. Members of the Palestinian delegation from Gaza, who arrived here last week, also participated in the march.

Among those associations present were: the Tunisian League of Tolerance, the Tunisian Association of Islam’s Voice, the Union of Arab Youth, the Association of Women for Citizenship and Equality, the Tunisian Association of Young Doctors, and a number of others.

A meeting was held between representatives of the associations and vice-president of the Constituent Assembly, Mahrzia Labidi, to explain the objectives behind the march. The groups proposed an article to the Tunisian Constitution that would criminalize the normalization of relations with Israel, and asked that the article be voted on before Constituent Assembly.

  1. Afif says:

    To include an article in the Constitution that concerns foreign policy is irresponsible and inflexible. Additionally, this kind of attitude is not productive. Why not leave the door open so that talks can take place. I reject the idea that palestinians should dictate our foreign policy. We can have vehement disagreements with the State of Israel, but shutting the door all together helps no one.
