SNJT: De luth en lutte… septembre 8 2009

Infos : , ajouter un commentaire

 

De Luth en lutte titrait un collègue il y a une dizaine d’année. On ne peut mieux pour décrire la soirée du 06 septembre au siège du Syndicat national des journalistes tunisiens. Le ùd du compositeur Adel Bouallègue contrôlé par la percussion du chanteur (et lequel) Mounir Troudi firent leur bel effet de chant éthéré et intimiste. Cheik Imam et Marcel Khalifé, comme toujours, notre recours unique aux heures graves. Un chant en banderoles, le phrasé sûr et l’expression accusée, un chant simple et battant pour accompagner l’action, un minimalisme instrumental comme aux champs chez les paysans… Voilà. C’était un chant des champs…

Un parterre de 150 personnes (la cinquantaine de journalistes accompagnées de leurs familles) prit plaisir à fredonner d’éternels refrains patriotiques, la belle hargne des classes, l’humanisme….Les sentiments collectifs nobles qui fondent somme toute le chant engagé.

Les artistes firent ainsi leurs aveux complets à la patrie et rendirent un vibrant hommage au bureau exécutif légitime du SNJT, qui joue dans les prochains jours son avenir…

FAJ Calls for “Unity Congress” to Ensure Internal Democracy of National Syndicate of Tunisian Journalists

The Federation of African Journalists (FAJ), the African Regional Organisation of the International Federation of Journalists, has today expressed the need for unity and democracy among journalists fraternity in Tunisia.

Due to recent leadership squabbles within the National Syndicate of Tunisian Journalists (SNJT) and the need of fresh elections for national leaders of Tunisian journalists, the FAJ calls for unity congress to strengthen the internal democracy of the syndicate on the basis of unity, pluralism and transparency.

“We feel that unity and solidarity, combined with internal democracy that empowers the membership are essential to unite Tunisian journalists and increase their strength in the media industry and the country”, said Omar Faruk Osman, FAJ President.

FAJ has been following with concern the developments in Tunisia. Following resignations of members of the executive committee, the syndicate has to go for general elections, according to its constitution. FAJ has learned that two different dates were set for the congress of the syndicate.

“While we fully understand that the only way out of the crisis is to respect the constitution of the syndicate and to go for fresh elections, we insist on the holding of unified, free and democratic general elections for the syndicate as the only way to ensure independent, united and democratic syndicate that defends the rights and interests of Tunisian journalists” Omar Faruk added.

His Excellency Zine El Abidine Ben Ali
President of the Republic of Tunisia
Presidential Palace

2016 Carthage
Tunis, Tunisia

VIA FACSIMILE: 216.71.774.721

Dear Mr. President:

On behalf of the over ten million working men and women of the American Federation of Labor
andCongressofIndustrialOrganizations (AFL-CIO),Iamwritingto expressdeep.concernoverreports
of government interference in the internal affairs of the National Union of Tunisian Journalists (SNIT).

As the SNIT works to determine its future direction, it is imperative that the government supports
full freedom of association for the members ofthe union. Freedom of association forjournalists is a
bedrock condition for larger freedoms of expression and of the press, and therefore must be actively
upheld and protected in an open, democratic society. Furthermore, Tunisia is a signatory to ILO
Fundamental Conventions 87 and 98 pertaining to the right to associate freely and bargain collectively.
As such, it is accountable to the international community for guaranteeing the trade union rights of all
workers, including journalists.

Your Excellency, wejoin with the 600,000journalists in 123countries, members of the
International Federation of Journalists (IF]), as well as the Committee for the Protection of Journalists, in
urging you to honor your often stated commitment to promote free expression, and to unequivocally
guarantee the protection of journalists and their right to freedom of association without interference from
any government entity. We look forward to reports of unencumbered, free and fair elections at the
upcoming assembly of the SNIT.

Sincerely,

JJS/jc
