We have a "blind date" with Mokhtar YAHYAOUI, it was a thrilling, exciting and exhausting week preparing for a stranger on short notice, someone we only knew through "friends of friends", telephone, e-mails, web-sites and study - see his PROFILE:
He was at the time we had in mind for the Salon at CHATHAM HOUSE in London - so that has set the grid ! His visit was to replace on last minute the visit of Alexander Christakis as his trip was not financed [link]
- such is life...
YAHYAOUI, now member of the HIGH COMMISSION for the comming elections is someone who thanks AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL. and the UN HUman Rights Council a lot and showed personal integrity and daring ! So why not invite him? check:.
He is invited for our ANNA-LINDH SALON here in BERLIN - See documentation of the dialogues, a weeks programme in berlin and links to radio and TV: description [link] thanks to the programme Believe-dialogue-act-citizenship as recently launched: description [link] as part of the Anna-Lindh-Foundation
Some 2nd Salons will take place June 17-24 with a special guest from Tunis, Judge Mokhtar Yahyaoui.We will need to remember the 10th Anniversary of maybe the most critical letter he wrote in is life on July 6, 2001 to his president Ben Ali ….. and see what it has to do with the Elections in Tunesia this autumn….
