Protesters Return to the Streets of Tunis in Spite of National Guard Repression

Hundreds of protesters returned to the streets of Tunis in a march towards Habib Bourguiba Avenue, where the families of killed & injured participants in the Arab Spring revolution are performing a sit-in to demand that the state halt repression against the youth fighting the classist & police state of Tunisia. Demonstrators were assaulted by police who deployed tear gas and arrested at least 20 activists.

Clashes between youth and the national guard in Ettadhamen continued to escalate, with tear gas deployed again as protesters threw rocks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks at law enforcement. So much tear gas was deployed that civilians began complaining about it seeping into their homes, cursing out the National Guard.
