Rabat – Moroccan Women Against Political Arrest Committee in Rabat has called for “broad and intensive participation in the peaceful popular march in Al Hoceima” previously introduced by leftist political parties and Moroccan human rights organizations.
In a statement released by Moroccan Women Against Political Arrest, the committee called on all those who were unable to go to Al Hoceima to participate in the march to join parallel initiatives organized by Moroccan Women Against Political Arrest, including a hunger strike on July 19 and a sit-in from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Moroccan Association for Human Rights’ Rabat branch, as well as a protest in front of the Parliament on July 20 from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m.
The organization announced its support for the demands of the popular march in Al Hoceima, especially the release of detainees, the opening of dialogue with them, and the response to the demands of the legitimate movement.
The committee expressed its condemnation of the continued detention of Rif’s activists and its concern for the life of the political activist and prisoner Sylia, as well as for the lives of the political activists who have declared hunger strike under the slogan “Freedom or martyrdom.”
The Rabat women called for civil, political, and civil rights activists in various cities to take urgent action by launching intensive initiatives to save the life of hunger strikers and put pressure for their release.
Activists from a coalition of progressive and leftist political groups, including the Democratic Left Federation, Annahj Addimoqrati [The Democratic Way], and the Moroccan Association for Human Rights are calling for a march in Al Hoceima on July 20 to support the Hirak movement.
Meanwhile, the Al Hoceima province announced in a statement to the Maghreb Arab Press on Monday that it will not allow the march to take place.
