Tunisian Constituent Assembly elections: Ennahda victory prepares further uprisings. Photo: Noeman AlSayyadThe conservative Islamist party Ennahda won a majority of seats (90 out of 217) in the elections to the Constituent Assembly in Tunisia on October 23.

Protest of the sacked workers of Pak Arab Oil RefineryThe working class is suffering the most in this epoch of economic and political crisis. The courageous workers who raise their voices in defence for their rights are victimized particularly by the goons of the capitalists and sacked from their job most of the times. The same is the case with the workers who were fired by the PARCO (Pak Arab Oil Refinery) administration without any notice as a punishment for forming a union to demand their basic rights.
