International public opinion announced that:

• All international delegations confirmed their programmed participation without any change, which stresses the actual size of the solidarity of the alternative globalization movement activists with Tunisia, its people, and the families of the victims of various nationalities, and their extent of commitment to peace and solidarity principles among peoples for freedom and democracy.

• The opening march is programmed to be on Tuesday, March 24th, starting at 4 p.m. from Bab Saadoun Square toward the Bardo Museum under the slogan: ’’ Peoples of the world united against terrorism ’’
