Press release
ar en es fr

Dear friends,

Tunisia is experiencing an extraordinary period in its history.
The dictatorship has fallen and the unprecedented hope of building a democratic country is no longer just a dream.
However, there is still a long way to go before this is achieved.

As a member of the International Board and as an FIDH member organisation, we are counting on your support:

1/ To express your solidarity with FIDH’s three member organisations in Tunisia :
 the Ligue Tunisienne des droits de l’Homme (LTDH - Tunisian League for Human Rights)
 the Association Tunisienne des Femmes Démocrates (ATFD - Tunisian Association of Democratic Women),
 the Conseil National pour les Libertés en Tunisie (CNLT - National Council for Liberties in Tunisia) that are in the front line of a revolution based on the defence and safeguard of human rights, you can post below your messages of solidarity with the Tunisian member organisations

2/ To get the largest number of States to express their support for the Tunisian people’s march towards democracy.

We are, of course, aware that you may be facing emergency situations and dealing with the various activities of your own organisations, but now is the moment to express this inter-league solidarity in favour of our Tunisian friends, without whom FIDH would not be what it is today.

Please do not hesitate to contact your representative in the Secretariat in this regard.

For your information, various facts and information regarding the situation, published by FIDH over the past weeks, can be found in the special feature on our website , including a web chat on le Monde.fr

Thank you in advance for both your solidarity and your support.

Souhayr Belhassen
