Tunisian police have used excessive force against teachers who protested on Thursday in front of the Ministry of Education, demanding authorities provide them with permanent jobs. According to the National Coordination of Representatives, the teachers were forced to end their protest after being subjected to "all forms of violence". Spokesperson for the National Coordination of Representatives, Malik Al-Ayyari, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed: "The suffering of the contract-based teachers has been increasing as the Ministry of Education is ignoring their demands." Referring to the violent dispersal of the protests, Al-Ayyari explained: "What happened to the teachers in front of the Ministry of Education was an unacceptable act and is considered an insult to the teaching profession."
