Tunisians on Wednesday marched in the capital Tunis in protest of the U.S. Middle East peace plan, also known as the Deal of the Century.
The protesters include members of civil society, professional organizations and political parties as well as independent activists.
“Palestine is not and will never be for sale,” said Noureddine Tabboubi, secretary-general of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT), as he addressed the protesters.
“Al-Quds al-Sharif is the eternal capital of the Palestinians,” he added.
Tabboubi called for “criminalizing all those who maintain relations with the Zionist entity and condemning all attempts to bring Israel closer to the Arab world.
Palestine’s ambassador to Tunisia Hayel Al-Fahoum pointed out that Anglo-Saxon lobbies are behind the deal of the century to set up bases in the Arab region to enslave humanity, affirming that it is the duty of all Arab peoples and not only the Palestinian people to oppose this deal.
Many political parties took part in the march, notably the Workers’ Party, the Democratic Current, the Echaab movement and the Democratic Patriots Movement, in addition to representatives of civil society.
