The Moroccan regime violates democratic freedoms in Global Day of Action for Real Democracy !!
In response to the Global Day of Action for Real Democracy Now! Young Moroccan activists have taken the initiative to call for a sit-in in Rabat (the capital of Morocco ) in 15th October.
At the time these young refined last technical and logistical preparations, in the local national of ATTAC/CADTM Morocco, the forces of repression, composed of police and local enforcement officers responded violently. The police beat and arrested several activists before releasing them. After several hours of siege, the police enter in our local!
Despite this repression upstream, this action was held in unprecedented meeting scheduled by the organizers. The police repressed again to stop the sit-in held in the district “Agdal”. For the third time that day, the police censored with extreme violence, a sit-in organized by the “February 20 movement” in front of the Moroccan Parliament.
