‘Poverty is not a crime’ media campaign launched in Tunisia

As part of their activities under the Campaign to Decriminalise Petty Offences in Africa, the Organisation against Torture in Tunisia (OCTT) has launched an media campaign to raise the awareness of the public and the policymakers about the necessity to stop criminalizing the minor offences that target poor and marginalized people. The ongoing media campaign includes this short film as well as posters in key neighbourhoods in Tunis, radio and newspaper coverage of the issue. Stay up to date on the work that OCTT is doing by following them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/octtun/
