From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
President booed off stage
Tuesday 18 December 2012
Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki and other dignitaries who spoke had to be escorted off stage by security forces as 3,000 people protested against lack of action by the country’s Islamist-led government.
Mr Marzouki said he had no “magic wand” to bring down unemployment.
But protesters complained they have seen little improvement in their region since the new government took power.
Some held signs saying: “The people want the fall of the government and a new revolution.”
In recent weeks, Tunisia‘s stagnant economy has fuelled a face-off between the Islamist ruling party Ennahda and the country’s main trade union, with days of rioting.
Ennahda condemned the protest, saying that unrest would only scare off investment in the region.
