    (ANSAmed) - Brussels, June 5 - Young Tunisians are ready to restart the revolution and return to the streets to fight for democracy, a young blogger said on Wednesday.

    "There will be revenge," warned Henda Chennaoui at a European Parliamentary conference on the Arab Spring held in Brussels.

    "In Tunisia there is an enormous problem among those who have power and those who conducted the revolution," the blogger said.

    "We have political prisoners, young ones like Amina Tyler, the Femen militant, in prison for serious charges after publishing a photo of her naked breast on Facebook but also cases of young men already sentenced to years in prison for having published texts and photos on religion".

    "Who governs us in the name of religion cannot continue to repress the Tunisian people, the aspirations of young people to true freedom of expression. We will continue to fight".

    The blogger warned that "injustice cannot endure". "The revolution of 2010-2011 is the demonstration of it. Action will come, we will take to the streets and we will tell things as they are". (ANSAmed).
