Tunisians hold sit-in to demand freedom of expression

Activists and members of the General Union of Tunisian Students (UGTE), a student union, participated in a protest against the background of the trial of student activist Othman Al-Aridi.

Several human rights parties in Tunisia recently warned of the decline in freedoms and increasing restrictions on freedom of expression.

This is in spite of President Kais Saied stressing that “there is absolutely no room for violating human rights, and there is no room for violating rights and freedoms, because we will never accept that.”
