AL Jazeera and many other TV channels (including the Tunisian ones) announced that Ezzine and his family have left the country. The dictator talked to his people three times in one month and every time he had made new concessions. The Tunisians were wise enough and kept the movement running. Today Ezzine dismissed all his government and then fled the country.
Let’s hope this dearly acquired freedom will not be confiscated by the army, the police or some remnants of Zine El Abidine’s regime (what happened to Abdallah Kallel?)
I cannot but compare with Algeria, my country. We lived similar events on October 1988, 22 years ago (I just realise it was a long time ago). Changes were made but they weren’t enough. The population has been betrayed again by the Pouvoir who finally stayed in power and by the opposition which sold its soul.
We will see how things will go in Tunisia. Today, everyone should remember Mohamed Bouazizi and make a prayer for him.
Update: Dilem’s caricature…
