Sub-Saharan Africans and black Tunisians experience different types of racism on a daily basis, ranging from harassment to stone-throwing and insults of all kinds. In 2016, three students were attacked with knives by a man who could not tolerate their skin colour. This led to a new law criminalizing racism in Tunisia.

Incitement to hatred and discrimination can lead to up to three years in prison. That is what the law adopted yesterday by the Tunisian parliament says. Today, Tunisian civil society and the Tunisian press are celebrating this new law, which aims to put an end to impunity.
