The Debate

Crackdown in Tunisia

Some are already calling it the Jasmine Revolution. But so far, social unrest in Tunisia has only escalated into bloodshed with police using real bullets to stop protests. As witnessed on the set of The France 24 Debate, dialogue among Tunisians is easier said than done.


A debate with François Picard and guests:

Taoufik MATHLOUTHI, Tunisian dissident and businessman
Saida AGREBI, Tunisian Member of Parliament (Ruling RCD Party)
Patrick SMITH, Editor in Chief, The Africa Report
George JOFFE, Research Fellow at POLIS, Cambridge University
