Tunisian Opposition Leader Calls for Continued Protests

Tunisia’s main opposition party has called for continued protests against “unjust” government austerity measures, a day after widespread demonstrations left one person dead and several others injured. Protests took place in a number of towns across Tunisia on Monday following the government’s decision to raise taxes under its 2018 Finance Act, Al Jazeera reported.  The budget, which took effect on January 1, hiked fuel prices and introduced new tax measures related to the purchase of housing.  Hamma Hammami, leader of the opposition Popular Front party, told reporters that multiple opposition groups would meet on Tuesday to “coordinate our movements”. “We will stay on the street and we will increase the pace of the protests until the unjust financial law is dropped,” he said.
