Tunis: International meeting on the struggles
An international meeting was held in Tunis from 30 September to 2 October in which the CGT participated.
The meeting was organized by Tunisian comrades from the Popular Liberation Front of Tunisia and had to overcome the problem of a last-minute refusal by the Minister for Youth to allow the meeting to take place in the Menzah youth centre as planned. At last however the plenary sessions took place at the Ibn Rachid cultural centre in the centre of Tunis.
Workshops were held on precarity, unemployment, self-organization, art and urbanism, universities, knowledge and culture, migration, debt, networks and autonomous communications.
Here is a translation of the final resolution and the summary (in French) of the workshop on debt, precarity and unemployment.
We are all engaged in the mobilizations and movements against all the tyrants and regimes of global finance capitalism, in North Africa and in Europe. We are seeking to build a new transnational space by linking up the various local struggles, and new forms of organization which go beyond and against the autocratic regimes and the system of political representation. No-one represents us.
Over these four days, we discussed precarity, unemployment, self-organization, art and urbanism, universities, knowledge and culture, migration, debt, networks and autonomous media. The workshops were held in Tunis, Sidi Bou Saïd, Regueb and Sidi Bouzid, Hammam-Lif and Sousse.
A website will be launched in order to coordinate our efforts and enlarge our network: http://international.r02.org.
A large transnational meeting will take place once a year and thematic meetings will take place whenever necessary in order to improve the network. We propose to hold the next thematic meeting in early 2012.
We will be taking an active part in the global day of action, United for Change, on 15 October. In our struggles and in the occupation of public places we proclaim:
WIpe out the debt!
No more austerity!
Knowledge is a common good!
Freedom of movement for all!
No-ones besides ourselves represents us!
We will not pay for your crisis
Whatever happens, I am here to stay!
Erhel! Get out! Que se vayan todos!

The unemployed movement in Tunisia: an unstoppable process 16:25 Mon 25 Apr 0 comments
Young people have been at the forefront of the revolution. Mohamed Bouazizi, whose death sparked off the revolt, was one of those educated young people who were rotting in villages with no prospect for the future. But these young people today are organizing themselves. More than 100 local branches of the Union have been created since February, when it was legalized, and so far it has gathered 45,000 members, male and female. [Castellano]

The voice from the streets is clear: the revolution in Tunisia has just begun 20:08 Thu 21 Apr 0 comments
Avenue Habib Bourguiba is a hive of activity. The hum of debate rebounds on all sides. From the steps outside the Municipal Theatre, the megaphone is passed from hand to hand. People talking, shouting, freely stating that the revolution must go on. Ben Ali has not gone away: his political police, though hidden, is still at work, his web of corruption is still in place, his people from the Constitutional Democratic Rally (RCD) are still there, though today mixed in with various political parties and are preparing for the right moment to return to power, which they never really left.

Our organizations affirm their full solidarity with the struggle of the Tunisian people for freedom and social justice and our support for militant anti-capitalist Tunisians.
