Protest rally outside Bardo Palace against procrastination in examination of draft law on criminalisation of normalisation with Zionist entity

The Civil and Political Coalition Tunisians for Palestine on Friday organised a protest rally outsite the Bardo Palace to protest against the procrastination of the parliament in complicity with the executive power in examining the draft law on the criminalisation of normalisation with the Zionist entity.

This protest rally coincides with the review by the Parliamentary Committee on Rights and Freedoms of the bill in question.

The Committee has decided to postpone the examination of the draft law on the criminalisation of normalisation with the Zionist State, following a majority vote of the members for the reorganisation of the timetable for the examination of draft law according to their priority.

According to coalition coordinator Slah Daoudi, the protesters are calling for the acceleration of the review of the bill in question and taking the necessary steps to vote it before its consideration in plenary session as of February 20, 2018.

According to him, parties have been trying for almost four weeks to hinder the examination and adoption of this bill.

“There is a clear political will not to pass this bill,” he accused, noting that these parties are obeying the orders of the powerful countries.

In the absence of support for their demands, coalition members threatened to hold further protest rallies on February 13 and 20, 2018.

The “Tunisians for Palestine” civil and political coalition includes the Unified Democratic Patriotes Party, Al-Jomhouri Party, Democratic Movement, Al Wehda Party, the National Struggle Movement as well as associations such as the Association ” Men Hakki “(My right), the Mohamed Brahmi Centre for Peace and Solidarity and the International Campaign for the Return to Palestine.
