COMMUNICATION FROM THE CALM
former president of the Ecole de la Cause freudienne
I have just been informed of the warrant that has been issued against RAJA BEN SLAMA. Having close ties with Tunisia, I cannot remain indifferent to the fate of my Tunisian colleague, nor to the destiny of the freedom of expression as such. As a consequence, and with the “nihil obstat” of Professor Fethi Benslama, brother of Reja, consulted by Jacques-Alain Miller, I am launching the following petition.
A PETITION IN FAVOUR OF THE PSYCHOANALYST RAJA BEN SLAMAThe undersigned, concerned not to interfere in Tunisian political life, but unconditional defenders of the freedom of expression in Tunisia as in all countries, demand the Tunisian authorities to abandon their investigation of psychoanalyst RAJA BEN SLAMA for a crime of opinion. They require that the warrant that was issued against her yesterday, Thursday 21 February, be cancelled rapidly.
They will be attentive to the guarantees that protect Human Rights in Tunisia following the “Arab Spring”.
