TUNISIAN PEOPLE STAGED ANTI-RIYADH PROTEST TO PREVENT SAUDI CROWN PRINCE SALMAN'S PLANNED VISIT TO TUNISIA




Mustafa AY- TDO-28.11.18 On Monday, hundreds of Tunisian human rights activists of 'Speak Their Mind’, who laid the very foundation of revolution in 2011, staged demonstrations against Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Tunis's main avenue 'Habib Bourguiba'. Through protest, Tunisians echoed their voices of reluctance to host Prince Salman on Tunisian streets. Human rights activist Achraf Aouadi, who spearheaded the protests, stated "Riyadh administration under guidance and control of Crown Prince Salman systematically committed and then, tried to whitewash the homicide of Jamal Khashoggi… They literally put pressure on Saudi journalists not to do their works properly and fairly... They incorporated themselves into Yemeni Civil War which triggered one of most awful humanitarian crisis. They are responsible for thousands of Yemeni civilians including in children over a thousand... Riyadh deprives female activists of their imprescriptible right of free expression by exposing them to ruthless mistreatments like torture and sexual harassment." That's why, they do not want to host Crown Prince Salman in their country, Aquadi concluded his words.
