Statement of the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT), 16.4.2014, www.thecommunists.net
David Leandro Hofstadter, a socialist journalist working for the Trotskyist Publishing House Rudolph Klement in Argentina, has been detained at his arrival in Tunisia on 6 April. Since then he has disappeared and not been in contact with his friends and comrades. It is obvious that he has been kidnapped by the Tunisian authorities.
The Revolutionary Communist International Tendency denounces this act of reactionary repression. We demand the immediate release of the comrade!
David Leandro Hofstadter covered as a correspondent the revolutionary process that shook Maghreb and Middle East since 2011. He travelled to Egypt, Iraq and Syria and visited several refugee camps. He is a revolutionary journalist who risks his live in order to advance the liberation struggle of the workers and oppressed.
He needs and he deserves our full solidarity!
We call the international workers movement to show its solidarity with comrade Hofstadter. You can start with sending messages of protest to the Tunisian Embassy in your country as well as to the Interior Minister of Tunisia (See its address below).
