A New Emphasis on Freedom – Oasis in Tunis - Newsletter n. 11 - 2012

 

 This is the newsletter of the International Foundation Oasis, www.fondazioneoasis.org

 

The Oasis Scientific Committee’s stay in Tunis, which takes place every year to plan the Foundations’ work and its instruments (the magazine, the newsletter, books, the website and events), was marked from the very first day by a series of ‘unexpected’ events which in the end added to its wealth. While the curfew in many towns imposed by the Tunisian government just a few days before the meeting, following the violent attacks by the Salafites, made it necessary to rethink the agenda in order to enter into the reality of the country even more, the official visit that the President of the Republic, Moncef Marzouki, made to Oasis contributed to widening the horizons of the meeting and confirmed the direction of the path undertaken.

In order to have a brief summary of Oasis’s days in Tunis, the following are recommended:

-    For a free Tunisia open to everyone, Muslims, Christians, Jews and Atheists, the speech made to Oasis by President Moncef Marzouki (19 June 2012). (For the text click here and for the video click here)

-    Reciprocal relevance, the welcoming of President Marzouki by Oasis
