Moroccan women stand up against political detentions

For the past few months, Morocco has been shaken by a historical social movement: Hirak. Created in one of the marginalised regions of Morocco, Rif, Hirak was born after the tragic death of Mohsin Fikri, a fish vendor ground in a garbage truck while trying to retrieve his confiscated merchandise. Hirak is a social movement that demands social justice and fights against marginalisation. As an answer to the significance of Hirak, the Moroccan state chose to launch a repressive campaign. Indeed, in the Rif, in general, and, Al Hoceima, in particular, over 150 persons were arrested.
