هل تسليم البغدادي المحمودي، رئيس وزراء ليبيا السابق نهاية وهم؟ إن البغدادي المحمودي بريء إلى أن تثبت إدانته في محاكمة عادلة تتوفر فيها كل شروط وضمانات الدفاع. وتسليمه، في نفس الوقت، هو واجب وحق للليبيين. لكن طريقة وتوقيت عملية التسليم تعتورها سبعة أخطاء: خطأ قانوني : القانون المنظم للسلط لا يعطي بطريقة واضحة لرئيس الجمهورية صلاحية منع أو مباركة التسليم ولكن في نفس الوقت لا يعطي هذه الصلاحية للوزير الأول! عدم وضوح النص يحيلنا آلياً للفصل 313 من المجلة الجزائية ...Keep Reading »
Yassine Ayari is a Tunisian network and security engineer and activist. As a blogger, activist and a citizen-journalist in the political field he has fought for freedom of speech and internet in Tunisia. In 2009 he ran as an independent candidate for legislatives against RCD. In 2010 he organized ( Nhar Ala Ammar) which was a demonstration against internet censorship. Because of this he was kidnapped, and threatened. Later on in the same year he was pressured unto leaving my job. He flew to Belgium and from there he worked as a “source of information” for the Tunisian Revolution when censorship was on its peak, especially after the first demonstrations. In 2011, he ran for the Constituent Assembly elections in an independent list.
He also organized a movement called “Kelmethom” demanding that the government give due rights (such as recognition and free medical treatments) for the martyrs and the wounded of the Revolution. He is also a founding member of The Tunisian Center for Traditional Justice and he has represented the Tunisian youth in many international meetings.
The upshot of all this is to say, alongside a veritable chorus of academics, activists, policymakers, and citizens in Lebanon and beyond, that sectarianism has been forged over time through specific institutional and discursive practices and, therefore, could be modified or undone.click | email | tweet
