    TUNIS - The Tunisian interior ministry on Thursday refused to authorize a sit-in planned for May 27 to protest the closing of cafes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
    The sit-in was planned by a civil rights collective using the hashtag #Mouch Bessif ('Not by Force') and calls for the application of Article 6 of the constitution, which enshrines freedom of religion and conscience. The announcement was made in a statement by the 'Association of Freethinkers', saying that one of the reasons for the refusal was allegedly that the protest would pose a threat to public order and that security forces would be unable to ensure the protection of those taking part in the sit-in. The association said that the interior ministry's decision is ''a clear violation of the constitution and a threat to the freedom of expression and to protest,'' underscoring that ''the interior ministry's role should be limited to protecting participants and not to prohibit the right to protect.'' Thus, the protest would be held on May 27 from 2 PM until 4 PM in front of the Tunisian tourism ministry, a member of another organization told ANSA. The issue of whether or not bars and cafes should be kept open during the holy month of Ramadan.
    No Tunisian law prohibits eating or drinking in public during Ramadan, but a circular issued in 1981 calls for the closing of unauthorized cafes and restaurants and a ban on selling alcohol.
