Around 20 people gathered outside Thomas Cook at Oldbury Green Retail Park on Oldbury Ringway yesterday in protest against Foreign Office guidance against all but essential travel to the country.
The event was organized by the Tunisian Association in Britain and included a minute’s silence in memory of the victims of the Sousse terror attack in June.
Organiser Mehdi Bahi, who is originally from Tunis and has lived in the UK for eight years, said supporters had gathered ‘in sympathy and solidarity’.
The 33-year-old car industry worker who lives in Oldbury, said: “We are protesting against the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as they have and are still advising against all but essential travel to Tunisia.
“We do understand the fact that they lost lives, but we believe that that’s what the terrorists wanted – to stop the tourism industry in our country.
“We believe that it is unfair because you can go and book a holiday to Turkey, but not to Tunisia. We are supporting the Tunisians.”
