Govt Of Tunisia Toppled After Violent COVID-19 Protests

ER Editor: This has us optimistically wondering if this could be a harbinger of things to come elsewhere. So far, we have few details on this story. What interests us especially is that currently elected representatives in the Parliament have lost their immunity.  It is clear from some of the tweeted videos below that the citizens are delighted.

Govt Of Tunisia Toppled After Violent COVID-19 Protests

Tunisia’s president has sacked the PM and suspended parliament becoming the first government in the world toppled in the wake of nationwide violent mass COVID-19 protests.

Govt Of Tunisia Toppled After Violent COVID-19 Protests

Tunisia’s president dismissed the government and froze parliament amid unrest over the “dysfunctional” political system and crumbling healthcare. His opponents decried the move as a “coup” and called for street protests.

Following an emergency meeting at his palace on Sunday night, President Kais Saied announced his decision to sack Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi and suspend the parliament.

In a televised address, he promised to consolidate power and “save” the country with the help of a new prime minister.

We have taken these decisions… until social peace returns to Tunisia and until we save the state.

Hundreds of people who had rallied against the government earlier in the day celebrated the drastic move in the streets, cheering, honking, and singing, as military vehicles surrounded the parliament building and state TV.

The parliament speaker and leader of the Muslim Brotherhood-inspired ‘moderate’ Islamist Ennahda party, Rached Ghannouchi, defied the order but was blocked from entering the parliament.

 

Ghannouchi denounced Saied’s move as “a coup against the revolution and constitution,” and called for street protests in a video message to supporters.

We consider the institutions still standing, and the supporters of the Ennahda and the Tunisian people will defend the revolution.

Saied, however, warned his political opponents against unleashing street violence, saying that the military won’t hesitate to use guns to quell unrest if it turns deadly.

I warn any who think of resorting to weapons… and whoever shoots a bullet, the armed forces will respond with bullets.

Under the constitution, the president is only directly responsible for military affairs and foreign relations, but last week, he put the army in charge of the Covid-19 pandemic response – after PM Mechichi sacked the health minister, blaming him for the collapse of the healthcare system.

Praised as the cradle of the Arab Spring, Tunisia adopted a new constitution in 2014, but still has no constitutional court to settle disputes, and consistently fails to form a stable government. President Saied and the parliament were both elected by popular vote in 2019, while Mechichi took office last year.

Ghannouchi’s Ennahda, which was banned before the 2011 uprising, has since become the dominant force in parliament, locked in constant political rivalry with the president and prime minister.

Angered by the “dysfunctional” political system and collapsing economy, thousands of protesters, not openly backed by any of the major political forces, once again rallied in the capital, Tunis and other cities on Sunday.

Clashes erupted amid the protests when people tried to storm the Ennahda party offices, forcing police to deploy tear gas. The violence was apparently the last straw for Saied, prompting him to take drastic measures.

    Let this be a warning to you. Do not let protests become violent that is just waht they want. Once the army is in charge you have lost , we have power and control now by peaceful means if only we use it. Common Law is the Law of the land we are the Law. The Government ,Queen ,Ploice Forces and the United Kingdom are all Service Companies that operate with our consent only. We individually or as a group can withdraw consent or pick and choose consent as we wish.A violent clash is just what the International Banksters are looking for .

    The alive you cannot be fined, taxed, or enslaved by any commercial corporate entity or system…
    The Government is the biggest corporation – its employees like the police like to try and enforce contractual law with deception hence them being there when Bailiffs turn up.
    Bailiffs have NO LAWFUL JURISDICTION – like all other corporations. The first thing you do to combat Admiralty law is:
    1. TAKE AWAY THEIR IMPLIED RIGHT OF ACCESS TO YOU AND YOUR PROPERTY. VERBALLY, IN WRITING, IN PERSON.
    2. NO COMMERCIAL ENTITY OR SYSTEM CAN CONTACT YOU IN ANY WAY ONCE YOU DO 1.
    3. ALL SUMMONS BY A COURT OVER FINES ARE MERELY INVITATIONS – DO NOT CONSENT AND TURN UP, IGNORE.
    4. (a) ONLY IF YOU DAMAGE ANOTHER’S PROPERTY, YOUR BODY IS YOUR PROPERTY, CAUSE LOSS, THERE IS A VICTIM CAN A SHERRIF*/POLICE CONSTABLE* WITH A WET SIGNED WARRANT FROM A JUDGE ARREST YOU.
    4. (b) Strictly under COMMON LAW the above is only lawful if the 2* PROVE LAWFUL JURISDICTION BY PRODUCING THEIR OATHS ON REQUEST.
    Any police, judge, magistrate or politician failing to act under their oath (sworn on the BIBLE), failing to show their oath then they COMMIT MISCONDUCT IN PUBLIC OFFICE. For each offence, they face up to 25 years in prison.
    With the police threaten to use a FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST to see those they have fined over the years – you then inform them everyone on that list will be told how to sue the policeman/women and their force. Only do this as a last resort.
    We have the COVENANT of COMMON LAW and the BIBLE that only God is above. The Queen is only their ruling WITH OUR CONSENT – it is a paper monarch who can also be tried for treason if need be.
    We all need to walk around with t-shirts saying WE DO NOT CONSENT TO COMMERCIAL CORPORATIONS.

    Watch the videos on this site,
    Legalese is used to fool men and women,
    Common Law is superior to and overrides Acts Statutes and Regulations(these are contracts under Company law Admiralty Law we consent or not as we choose). We have Common Law the law of the Land.We are all equal under the Law ,Queen, Lords everybody.

    Police work for service Companies(your Police Force will be registered as a Company check it out your self) but they also have an Oath to uphold the Law Impartially as
    Constables and also as Officers of a Company a fiction to collect fines for profit from you , The Queen is a company, David Cameron, House of Lords,
    Judges,even the United Kingdom is a company , they trade for profit.
    Example:
    WEST YORKSHIRE POLICE
    RAID-CONTROL TRUST
    Company Number (04885861)
    Company status
    Active
    Correspondence address
    PO BOX 9, Police Headquarters, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, WF1 3QP
    https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/officers/F51eppyeIer8eoEbLVEaIfCsPAw/appointments

    TCP ,Trespass,Contract,Property.
    When faced by Police ask ” Who have I trespassed against which man or woman?”
    “Who do I have a Contract with , bring forth the man or woman.”
    “Who claims that I am property , which man or woman?”
    If no answer is forth coming .
    “Are you on your Oath”
    “As a living man”
    “Am I free to go?”
    Your Children are your property under the Law no one can touch them without your consent.
    Do not engage in conversations they will try to trick you with legalese, keep it simple
    with the above and then continue on your way , or if they are on your Common Law Jurisdiction
    write a notice as such fix to your door and they continue to harrass you ask them to leave as they are trespassing against you.

    Dealing With The Police – Years ago, a policeman was your friend and defender. Things have changed now that Police Forces have become commercial organisations, dedicated to producing a profit by taking money from you in the form of Fixed Penalty Notices, Speeding Fines, Parking Fines and any number of other charges.
