Adéu a Nihil Obstat | Hola a The Catalan Analyst

Després de 13 anys d'escriure en aquest bloc pràcticament sense interrumpció, avui el dono per clausurat. Això no vol dir que m'hagi jubilat de la xarxa, sinó que he passat el relleu a un altra bloc que segueix la mateixa línia del Nihil Obstat. Es tracta del bloc The Catalan Analyst i del compte de Twitter del mateix nom: @CatalanAnalyst Us recomano que els seguiu.

Moltes gràcies a tots per haver-me seguit amb tanta fidelitat durant tots aquests anys.

I de la revolució tunisiana, què?

L'ull mediàtic està concentrat a Egipte i ja gairebé ningú segueix el que passa a Tunísia, on va començar la revolta. Doncs, pel que sembla, està siguent un èxit.
The fact is, Tunisia has been going through what history may see as one of the most successful revolutions, leading to what all Tunisians are hoping to achieve — a truly democratic Tunisia.

Cafés are packed and politics is the topic at every table. The television shows are having very candid discussions about the Ben Ali era and the crimes that were committed, as well as discussions about the new ministers who have been appointed and the nearly unanimous acceptance by Tunisians of the government in transition — a government that will call for new elections to be held in approximately six months.

Tunisians are enjoying watching the evening news, something they rarely did in the past. Now, the media has substance and transparency. Frank discussions take place on the radio and in the newspapers, with signs of optimism found throughout the nation. People are exuberant in their new-found freedom to speak as they choose and to participate in a transparent political process.
