What if we supported a free Tunisian press?
I’ve been learning a lot about the events in Tunisia thanks in large part to the Franco-Tunisian community on Twitter (thanks especially to @Hedia), and I’ve started to wonder what I and others could do to help out, in this period before any major NGO gets on the ground.
You can then imagine how thrilled I was to hear about the project done by French online paper Rue 89 to support freedom of the press in Tunisia. Teaming up with the online store ComBoutique Rue 89 has created a line of t-shirts and mugs for sale. 7 € from the sale will be donated to support the creation of a free Tunisian press. As of now, a recipient for the funds has not yet been
chosen, but the paper will keep its readers abreast of it’s activities as well as of the fate of the monies. To participate, click here.
