Hunger strike by leaders of the Tunisian Progressive Democratic Party

They came first for the Communists,

I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;

Then they came for the trade unionists,

I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;

Then they came for the Jews,

I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;

And then . . . they came for me . . .

There was no one left to speak up.

Abbou's wife, Samia Abbou, is being persistently harassed by the security forces as a result of her struggle for the release of her husband. Last December, while on her way to visit her husband with other human rights defenders, she was brutally assaulted and beaten by a group of forty men right in front of several police officers, who looked on without intervening.
