Nicolien Zuidgeest interviews Tunesian journalist & activist Lilia Weslaty.


Lilia Weslaty is the Tunisian activist from the documentary Zero Silence. She grew up in Tunisia in what she describes as an ‘apolitical’ family that did not dare to speak out against the regime. She has been an active cyber-blogger since 2008, posting (anonymous) short films on the internet about Tunisians who are subjected to torture.


Nicolien Zuidgeest is a writer, journalist, trainer and media consultant. She studied Arabic and gladly testifies to the inspiration she draws from the ties between the Islamic world and Europe.
