@zizou. yâatik essaha. l'ATCE n'aurait pas mieux fait :)

fallait aussi parler, même un tout petit peu, des effets collatéraux de la tornade...
cher K-pax !
tout le monde ne parle que de ca... pleins de jeunes tunisiens comme toi et moi se sont bcp depensé pour qu'a ce sommet les jeunes du monde soient present et qu'on n'oublie pas ceux des pays pauvres. et personne ne parle d'eux (pour l'instant).
Malheureusement les tornades ou plutot cyclone ne font bouger que les parties collaterales et l'oeil du cyclone reste malheureusement calme. ce sujet comme tant d'autres reste dans pour l'instant dans l'oeil du cyclone.

تونس: كارثة الإيقاف التحفظي

الإيقاف التحفظي والايداع بالسجن قبل إصدار الحكم يجب ان يكون الاستثناء وليس القاعدة. هذا الإجراء المعمم بالمحاكم التونسية هو سبب اكتظاظ السجون(50%من السجناء هم مواطنين موقوفين ولا يوجد حكم ضدهم) وثابت علميا انه يؤثر على مجرى العدالة بشكل كبير ويؤثر سلبا على الأحكام فنادرا ما يحكم الموقوف بالبراءة او بمدة اقصر من التي قضاها تحفظيا . هذه الممارسات تسبب كوارث اجتماعية واقتصادية و تجعل المواطن يحقد على المنظومة القضائية و يحس بالظلم و القهر Pour s'approfondir dans le sujet: Lire L'etude du Labo démocratique intitulée :  "Arrestation, garde à vue, et détention préventive: Analyse du cadre juridique tunisien au regard des Lignes directrices Luanda"

La Tunisie sur le Los Angeles Times

Un article du Los Angeles Times (the third-most widely distributed newspaper and the second-largest metropolitan newspaper in the United States ) qui passera surement inapercu en Tunisie mais qui merite qu'on s'y attarde rien que pour le fait que c'est le deuxieme du meme auteur ( email ) dans l'espace d'un seul mois et les seuls qui parlent de la Tunisie au LA Times durant toute l'annee 2007.

رئيس حكومتنا " يركب التونسية"

فما قولة شعبية في السودان تتقال وقتلي واحد يمشي و ما يرجع او فريق كرة قدم يخسر في تصفيات كأس و يلم ادباشه او شخص يتم فصله على العمل . هذه القولة هي " يركب التونسية" ويرجع ظهورها الى الثمانينات لما كانت الخطوط التونسية تربط تونس بالخرطوم. هذه القولة في حد نفسها تلخص مدى الثقة التي تحضى بها تونس و شركاتها والتحدي الموجود لكسب الثقة وتغيير العقليات . فلما سمعت بان رئيس حكومتنا برمج زيارة الى السودان في الأسبوع القادم برفقة مئة رجل اعمال خلت ان حقبة "يركب التونسية" انتهت   وان تونس الجديدة بلد الديموقراطية وضعت السودان وبقية جيراننا في الجنوب في اولاوياتها خاصة بعد غياب طويل عنهم وعلى مؤسساتنا القارية مثل الإتحاد الأفريقي.  ولكن و مثل كل رجال الاعمال و اخواننا في النيجر و السودان و ببوركينا فاصو فوجئت بإلغاء الزيارة بدون اي سبب. وبذلك ، بعد أشهر من العمل والتحضيرات ركب رجال الاعمال و برامج التعاون والمعاهدات المزمع ابرامهاو احلامنا بعلاقات أمتن التونسية مرة اخرى وبقيت صورة تونس على حالها.
