Tunisia - (2012 - 2013)

Tunisia - the sights


Tunisia is a very beautiful country, with a millenary history, at the crossroads of many civilisations, with an accessible landscape, meaning also an easy target for invaders whose multiple waves mixed thoroughly with the natives. And while it has temperate weather, it does have four well-defined seasons, each with its colours and sights. These are but a very small sample of what you are likely to find there on a visit.

A year rich in political events


Politically, 2012 - 2013 was a pivotal year in the modern history of Tunisia. That year, the Troika was in power (islamist party Ennahdha, social democratic, turned Ennahda apologist, "Ettakattol" party, and panarabismt, leftist, turned islamo-thuggish, "Congrès pour la République" party), and saw an attack on the headquarters of the UGTT (Union Générale des Travailleurs Tunisiens) by thugs affiliated with Ennahdha and CPR, and the assassination, execution style, of two leaders from the progressive left.
