UGTT Executive Bureau demands cancellation of Michel Boujenah’s show

The Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) Executive Committee, called in a press release Tuesday for the cancellation of a show by Tunisian-born French Jewish comedian Michel Boujenah scheduled in Carthage Festival and on other stages.

This call was motivated by his pro-Zionist positions, his support to the racist fascist entity and defence to criminal Sharon and not over his Jewish religion since the Jewish community is one of the cultural and historic component of Tunisia, it stressed.

In this regard, the executive committee called on the Culture Ministry to assume its responsibilities and carefully select shows, by providing a greater share to Tunisian shows, especially in this difficult economic situation.

The bureau recalled in this regard, that the Palestinian cause has always enjoyed a special place in the heart of Tunisian people who have always rejected all forms of normalisation with Israel, including cultural normalisation.

Boujehan is scheduled to perform on July 19 at the Carthage Archeological Museum as part of the 53rd edition of the Carthage International Festival as part of the Beyond Walls programme (July 3-August 19).
