The most powerful trade union in Tunisia is staging rallies in a number of cities in protest against President Kais Saied.
Thousands of members of the UGTT union denounced the soaring cost of living and the recent arrests of prominent anti-government figures, including a top union official.
At the biggest demonstration in the southern city of Sfax, protesters brandished banners, reading "Tunisia is not for sale" and "Stop the attack on union freedoms".
President Saied has accused what he called "traitors" of being responsible for price rises and food shortages.
