Tunisia adopts new liberal Constitution!Submitted by ss119 on Sun, 01/26/2014 - 23:36
This was the first country that went 'Arab Spring' a few years ago, sparked by a fruit vendor setting himself on fire in protest. Three years later, and they seem to have done it:
1) No Islamist Sharia law
2) Equal rights for men and women
3) Democratic elections
"An entire chapter of the document, some 28 articles, is dedicated to protecting citizens' rights, including protection from torture, the right to due process, and freedom of worship."
"It will replace the 1956 constitution drafted when Tunisia gained its independence from France."
Way to freakin go, Tunisia.
