Sahara Occidental : Macron incite le Maroc à faire la guerre à l’Algérie

Il était difficile d’éviter les images de la réception du dirigeant Saoudien à Paris juste avant les frappes, mais il ne s’agissait pas de la seule initiative diplomatique auprès des potentats arabes particulièrement réactionnaire et navigant de plus en plus en accord avec la monarchie saoudienne, à la fois contre l’Iran et contre les Etats qui prétendent résister aux injonction impérialistes macrono-trumpiennes. En effet si Trump est en train de peser sur l’Europe pour que celle-ci assume toujours plus l’OTAN et la présence américaine, en Afrique on assiste aux mêmes pressions pour entrer dans des expéditions. L’Algérie ayant résisté aux propositions d’expédition hors de son territoire, selon ce journal, l’entreprise de dépeçage interne et celle de l’hostilité de ses voisins aurait commencé.

Morocco threatens Algeria with intervention in Western Sahara

Morocco has informed Algiers through diplomatic channels that it will intervene militarily in Western Sahara if Sahrawi forces do not withdraw from the area east of the defensive wall, an Algerian diplomatic source told the Middle East Eye.

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.
