But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Today, for Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Tunisian Protesters Call for an End to Police Brutality After Recent Killings of Civilians

HeadlineJun 14, 2021

In Tunisia, hundreds of protesters clashed with police in working-class neighborhoods of the capital Tunis on Saturday, capping days of demonstrations demanding an end to police brutality. The protests erupted after video emerged showing police officers in civilian clothes stripping and viciously beating a young man. That incident came just a day after the funeral of another man who, his family says, was beaten to death by police. Protesters say Tunisia has yet to see meaningful police reform 10 years after the revolution that toppled longtime dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
