(Washington DC – January 15, 2012) Today at 9AM EST (3PM in Tunisia), America Abroad Media's Tunisian office — Association Tunisie Media (ATM) — partnered with Radio Mosaique FM to host a town hall discussion exploring Tunisian identity in a post-revolution society.
The event connected audiences in the coastal city of Bizerte and the rural city of Beja to discuss the possible tension between a modern, secular Tunisian identity and the traditional Arab-Muslim identity that has made a strong resurgence since the revolution.
This timely event — one day after the 2nd anniversary of the revolution that ousted longtime president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali — was live streamed on Radio Mosaique's website. To submit a question, visit Mosaique's Facebook page.
