More than five thousand protesters, both Tunisian and foreign nationals participated in a march from Bab Saadoun Square, the center of the capital city of Tunis, to Pardo Square in front of the parliament building and next to the Bardo Museum. The march under the theme "peoples of the world united against terrorism," came amid tight security at the invitation of the organizers of the World Social Forum, which starts its proceedings on Tuesday in Tunis. The march saw the participation of thousands of organizations invited to the Global Forum. Protestors chanted slogans against terrorism, while others took the opportunity to rally against capitalism and globalization and to call for social justice for the poor.
