Tunisia’s Future: Opposition Says It Feels Threatened


Moncef Marzouki: We got rid of the dictator, but the dictatorship is still there.  I mean the secret police is still there, the party of the dictatorship is still there.

Nazanine Moshiri: . . . Rachid Ghannouchi was also exiled under Ben Ali.  With many members of his Islamic al-Nahda movement imprisoned or tortured, he says the new government isn’t legitimate.  His party and many other opposition groups have been shut out of the political process.

Rachid Ghannouchi: People must protect their revolution if they value the achievement of toppling the dictator.  The blood of the martyrs is in their hands, and not all their goals have been achieved.  The street must be ready.  The genuine opposition must come together to build on a common vision.
