    TUNIS - Just a few days ahead of the tenth anniversary of the start of the 'Arab Spring' in Tunisia, the families of the dead and wounded of the revolution have announced that they will continue a sit-in and that they will start new forms of protest to ask for the publication as soon as possible of the final list of victims of the uprising on the Official Gazette.

    The families are also asking for the implementation of recommendations from the final report of the Superior committee for human rights and fundamental freedoms (Csdhlf).

    Some families of victims started, on December 17, a sit-in to protest in front of the headquarters of the General authority of resistance fighters and martyrs and of the wounded of the revolution and of terrorist attacks. On December 8, the president of this authority, Abderrazak Kilani, told a press conference that the final list was ''almost ready'' and that it would be published on the Official Gazette to coincide with celebrations for the tenth anniversary of the Revolution and that the lists published by the Truth and dignity commission (Ivd) and by the Superior committee for human rights and fundamental freedoms would be unified.

    On October 8, 2020, the Commission of martyrs and the wounded of the revolution published on the website of the Superior committee for human rights and fundamental freedoms the final list with the names of 129 martyrs and 634 wounded.
