Rabat- “Marche Contre L’insécurité Ambiante à Casa” or March Against urban crime in Casablanca, is the name of a new Facebook page calling for a march to show citizens’ displeasure toward the growing insecurity in Casablanca.
Shocked and afraid of the growing crime rate in Casablanca, youths created a page on Facebook that calls for citizens to take to the streets city for a march against crime.
Though neither the place nor the date of the march have been announced, the page has over 10,500 “likes”.
L’Economiste, one of the newspapers reporting on this initiative, wrote that the crime rate in Casablanca has become “scary”.
Giving examples of horrid crimes committed in the city, L’economiste recounted stories of some victims which garnered public attention, such as the case of Azzedine Berrada, Chief Executive Officer of Laboratories Bottu Morocco, who just lost his wife on March 24th, after she was stoned in his car near Sidi Maarouf, Casablanca. Miloud El Mokharek, SG of the Moroccan Union of Workers (UMT) , was also stoned and injured on the highway between Casablanca and Rabat last month.
In the same vein, earlier this week MWN reported that the players of WAC of Casablanca were exposed to an armed attack during a training session by over 250 masked hooligans.
On Facebook, criminals also created new pages entitled “Tcharmil” ,where they post daily pictures of their loot such as watches, smart phones or cash, while holding swords in their hands or alcohol with uncovered faces.
The number of likes of the Facebook page “Marche Contre L’insécurité Ambiante à Casa” is increasing, which indicates that the march is likely to be organized in the coming days.
