Many civil society activities cancelled

TUNIS, Tunisia

Many international NGOs taking part in WSIS have collectively decided to cancel their activities planned for today at WSIS. This measure is intended to make government, private sector and civil society delegates aware of the human rights violations that have been adding up since the beginning of PrepCom3 resumed. It is also a clear showing of solidarity with all independent NGOs in Tunisia who seem to have to put up with police repression on a daily basis. Interview with Anriette Esterhuysen of the Association for Progressive Communications (APC).

Around 3 pm Tunis time, there will be a short press conference on the matter at the WSIS media centre. I have interviewed (in audio) Anriette Esterhuysen of the Association for Progressive Communications (APC). She gives the reasons for this WSIS boycott.
