Pressemelding fra Attac Marokko: Morocco will host the second edition of the World Human Rights Forum (WHRF) in Marrakech from 27th to 30th November 3014. The holding of this event coincides with the policy of muzzling of civil liberties of the Moroccan authorities. The activities of several Moroccan NGOs were just banned, others have been not allowed to access to public spaces they have reserved in advance. Latest examples: the interdiction of a training for journalists organized by Ibn Rushd Center on November 2nd, imprisonment of a young rapper, the prohibition of a caravan of solidarity with migrants in Tangier, banning of union meetings in preparation for the general strike on October 29, repression of labor, social and students’ movements, persecutions against microcredit victims, violence, discrimination and deportations of migrants, etc … These are among examples of a long list of arrogance of the authorities and their quest to criminalize the struggle for human and social rights. ATTAC Morocco has been suffering for years of human rights violation. The State deprives us of our right to renew our legal receipt despite.
