Save Tunisian Culture in the US

Dear friends and supporters of the Tunisian Cultural Center, In this revolution of freedom and democracy, Tunisia should expand her culture all over the world. Instead, the Tunisian Center has been ordered to close. We need your support NOW. We need to defend the noble cause of the global language of culture, which has no political color, and bring the new image of the free and democratic Tunisia to the world. If you believe that the Tunisian Center should remain open, and that Director Remadi Nour should remain as head of the Center, please add your name to our petition with a comment explaining your support. Then forward this petition to as many people as possible. Dear Friends, please vote democratically and rationally, and help us save the ONLY Tunisian Cultural Center in the United States. We thank you for your trust and support. Sincerely, The Petitioners for the Tunisian Cultural Center

    4 years ago Comments: The center is key to promote Tunisia's image and help the Tunisian tourism industry benefit from upscale American travelers. The kind of travelers who would be interested in discovering our 3,000 years history, our culture, our capacity as Tunisians to overcome the hardest obstacles, is absolutely needed.
