Political parties and civil society's organisations condemn security treatment of demonstrations in Sidi Bouzid.

TUNIS (TAP) - Political parties and organisations of the civil society condemned on Friday what they called "security and repressive treatment" of the Sidi Bouzid Demonstrations".

The Tunisian Human Rights League (LTDH) strongly condemned, in a communique published Friday, "the suppression" of the peaceful demonstrations in Sidi Bouzid and other cities of the country.

The LTDH calls for the liberation of all the persons arrested, and requires an independent investigation on the last incidents and "security infringements" which accompany them.

In turn, the Patriot Democrat Movement (Watad) expressed support to Sidi Bouzid's people in "their legitimate claims" for the region, according to a communique published Friday.

It condemned "the repression" of the government, calling "all the civil and progressive forces to combine their fights to achieve the aspirations of the Tunisians to freedom, dignity and social justice."

"This crisis will not be resolved by false accusations, but by equitable policies", asserted Tunisia's Call Movement, in reaction to the accusations made against this movement by the Ennahdha Movement, which evokes as proven fact, "the co-ordination of some known persons of the region" with "Tunisia's call", to spread disorder in Sidi Bouzid."

Tunisia's call made the government responsible of the Sidi Bouzid incidents, because of "its bad policies, its failure to keep the electoral promises and satisfy the imperatives of the transitory period," calling for the presentation of evidence for these allegations.
