Target: Kais Saied, President of Tunisia
Goal: End the human rights abuses against the people of Tunisia.
As a new president takes power in Tunisia, some hope that the violence and brutality that has plagued the country will come to an end. Add your voice to the millions demanding that the new President Kais Saied add human rights reform to his list of urgent policies.
Abuses have been carried out by authorities in the name of national security since the nation has been in a “state of emergency” since 2015. This has limited freedom of speech, expression, and assembly in the country. While the country has taken steps to outlaw torture and reform the judicial sector, no strict policy has been enacted.
Now is the perfect opportunity for the president to protect the citizens under his watch. Sign the petition to demand that the president make human rights reform a key point of his policy.
Dear President Saied,
Since an uprising nearly a decade ago, the people of Tunisia have been under a state of emergency. Their freedoms of speech, assembly, and expression are restricted. Some have been tortured and discriminated against. Despite talks, your government has yet to enact strict policies to end this abuse.
As new president, you have the perfect opportunity to start your term off on the right foot. Make human rights reform a key point of your political agenda and protect the citizens now under your care.
[Your Name Here]
