Members of the local Tunisian community and supporters will rally outside the central branch of the Vancouver Public Library.
"We will be joining members of the Tunisian Diaspora and other supporters in rallying to support the movement for democracy in Tunisia which has inspired the whole world," said Dr. Younes Alila, a UBC Professor.
The dictator Ben Ali fled Tunisia last week after sustained mass protests against his decades-long rule. Ben Ali's family has Canadian connections and investments. In Montreal, rallies have been held outside his son-in-law's mansion.
