Police in Marrakech arrested several French activists for displaying a poster denouncing the Global Compact for Migration (GCM).
Rabat – Police arrested three French activists from far-right French movement “Identity Generation,” December 11 for raising a poster in Marrakech expressing their opposition to the Global Compact for Migration.

The number of the activists arrested is not yet known.
The French movement, Identity Generation, is known for racism. The spokesperson of the group took to his Twitter account to announce the arrest and call for support.
“Any country that signs will #PacteDeMarrakech sign it, in a way, a pact with the devil! It is a commitment to open the doors of our countries to all migrations. It’s about turning the world into a gigantic squat! ” #ConfMENL https://t.co/0jKqZPpcXC
