Do you follow what is happening currently in Tunisia ?? You do not , then you are missing a lot.
Forget about the Lebanese government ,forget about the South Sudan , even forget about Egypt for now because we are now in front of a history making moment. The Tunisians.
Currently there is a revolution in Tunis, the capital , thousands are protesting in front of the ministries and central bank demanding Ben Ali to step down immediately. The clashes in the capital are violent and yet the people are not giving up nor they are deceived by Ben Ali’s tricks. Just from few hours Ben Ali announced that he sacked the current government and will call for parliamentary. The state of emergency has been announced through out the country and a curfew will imposed from 7 PM to 5 AM. “Unlikely to stop the clashes and protests”
There are clashes between the security forces that have gone crazy and the the people who can’t anymore , there is chaos through out the country no doubt in this.
There are unconfirmed news that the journalists have taken over the official national TV. “TV 7 is still praising Ben Ali” Speaking about TV strangely and unexpectedly the National Egyptian TV is covering the revolution amazingly !! All the Arab world citizens are watching with admiration their Tunisian brothers especially Egypt.
Thomas Cook has started to evacuate 3,300 British tourists from the country immediately. The main airport in Tunis is currently under the protection of the army. There are rumors that some of the regime men have managed to flee the country while there is a strong rumor repeated by eye witnesses that the army stopped some VIP from leaving the country. “Mostly from the Trabelsi clan” Update : according to Al Jazeera and France 24 the army has full control of the airport and closed the airspace. Al Hurra TV : Has reported that there were clashes at the airport and that Ben Ali tried to flee the country
The ambassador of Tunisia to the UNESCO Mezri Haddad has resigned from his post. You can read his strong letter of resignation here in French.
I am proud that I have covered this revolution , the jasmine revolution since the start. Now I beg to all Arab conspiracy theorists and also to all those loyal journalists who get paid to publish these paid ads about the achievements of Ben Ali to stop repeating that this is a Zionist American scheme for chaos and to the end of this nonsense. Ben Ali had relations with Israel , Ben Ali used Israeli weapons against his own people
TV 7 announced to the Tunisian people that there will be a very important announcement sooner , up till now there is nothing. According to all speculations it will be the announcement of a coup d'eta.
Al Jazeera announced that the head of the Tunisian parliament will announce that he would rule the country for the next 60 days
The army has arrested 6 members of the Trabelsi clan in the airport
