Tunis — The sit-in outside the Government Palace in Kasbah continued on Sunday afternoon.
Several residents of the capital joined the "Freedom Caravan" that included initially nearly one thousand demonstrators, men and women from villages and towns of the Governorate of Sidi Bouzid from which the popular protest started after the self-immolation of the late Mohamed Bouazizi.
Protesters said they will continue their sit-in until the fall of the interim Government and satisfaction of their demands for decent life.
" The people wants the fall of the Government," proclaims a banner of protesters.
" We have come from Menzel Bouzayene, Sidi Bouzid and Regueb to bring down the remnants of the dictatorship," they chanted.
Youth taking part in the sit-in said the choice of camping outside the headquarters of the Prime Ministry is a symbolic gesture to send a strong message to the interim government: "the blood of martyrs will not be shed for nothing." They hope to force the interim national government to resign.
