Tunisian Bloggers


In Tunisia, we’re working with an impressive group of bloggers.   Emma Benji writes,  “I once had an unfortunate experience with the police when I was stopped in the street and questioned for seven hours.   But in hindsight, I think I was very lucky compared to others who have been beaten and tortured physically.”  
Being questioned for hours on end, not all that unusual in any country where police can detain and question as they wish (and you're thinking what's the problem with that?  That's just like what the Patriot Act allows the government to do.)
They all realize the crucial importance of free expression.  
Henda Hendoud’s blog is dedicated to freedom, press and revolutions.    Information is like people:  both want to be free.
