Tunisian soccer player who protested ‘bananas are expensive’…extreme choice

A soccer player who was treated as a terrorist by the police after complaining that “bananas are expensive” in Tunisia, North Africa, made an extreme choice.

According to foreign media and Tunisian media such as Reuters on the 14th (local time), soccer player Nizar Isaoui (35), who played for US Monastir in the first division of Tunisian professional soccer, was unable to overcome the aftereffects of burns at a burn hospital in Tunis, the capital, and died the day before. passed away

As a free agent (FA) player, he played for an amateur soccer team until recently.

He claimed he made this extreme choice because the police accused him of being a terrorist for protesting high prices.

In a video posted on Facebook right before making the extreme choice, Issaouy said, “I was charged with terrorism by the police for arguing over the sale of bananas for 10 Tunisian dinars (about 4,300 won). I was protesting the price of bananas. He became a terrorist.”

He also wrote, “I sentenced myself to be burned at the stake. Now I have no more power. Let this police state know that I carried out my own sentence.”

Immediately after Isaui’s death, family members protested outside the police station where he was accused of terrorism, and many young people protested violently, throwing stones at the police station in support of the family, local media reported.

Some local media commented that his death was reminiscent of the death of Muhammad Bouazizi, a street vendor in his 20s in December 2010, which sparked the Arab Spring revolution that shook the entire Arab world.

Tunisia was praised for being a rare success in democratization in the Middle East as the origin of the ‘Arab Spring’ uprising that swept across the Middle East and North Africa in 2011.

However, anti-government protests continued as the chronic economic difficulties met with the Corona 19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine deepened and prices soared.

In the midst of this, President Kays Said, a constitutional scholar who was elected through a democratic election in October 2019, put up the banner of eradicating corruption and incompetence in the political world and attempted reform by suspending the functions of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches through ‘command rule’. .

However, President Sayed’s political reforms, which were carried out while the economic situation continued to deteriorate, only increased distrust in politics, including boycotts of elections by the opposition and citizens.

Inflation in Tunisia last February reached 10.4%, the highest in 30 years, and citizens’ dissatisfaction is growing due to soaring unemployment and depreciating currency values.

Facing the worst economic crisis, Tunisia pushed for a bailout of $1.9 billion from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), but President Said refused to accept the IMF’s demand to cut subsidies for food and energy as a condition for the bailout.
