(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #231 - Morocco: A crisis that never ends (fr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 26 Nov 2013 18:11:47 +0200

Political, economic and social, Morocco is undergoing a profound crisis: public education failed, rampant racism, living conditions more difficult for the popular classes. ---- Not easy to live in Morocco for the popular classes: the cost of living continues to rise, while wages do not follow the same curve, public services are down or virtually non-existent in some areas. In August there was a increase of almost 6% of the price of milk, which proves that economic growth and affluence by the vaunted power are far from benefiting the entire population. Much of Moroccans and Moroccan still face poverty and discrimination, and this is even more true for those who come from poorer countries.

Popular education initiatives

National education has become a fair in dough. All social classes, Moroccan families opt for private education, because public education has become a ghost that does not even guarantee the minimum of the right to know. This situation is the result of years of corruption and budget cuts dictated by the IMF. From this was born a year ago the collective UECSE (Student Union to change the education system): he fights for a public education system that is accessible especially to the poorest social classes, and guaranteeing the right to know and quality training. Among the actions that this group participates or initiates that include time of collective reading in public spaces: the action is very well received across the country by the young, but is repressed in some cities. In addition, there is the organization, recently a popular university philosophy every Thursday evening this popular university, which demonstrated a sustained level and openness to everyone, implements collective and constructive thinking in a revolutionary mood and open to ideas.

Morocco, ramparts of Fortress Europe

Racism against people from African countries south of Morocco begins to speak without shame, in a society still steeped in denial. In the month of August there was a deadly attack on a passenger bus in a Senegalese nationality: while it was sitting in the seat indicated on the ticket, individuals had asked him to change positions, that he had refused. This situation is the result of the security delegation of the European Union and agreements with Morocco to dam migration flows to Europe. Consequently, people from sub-Saharan Africa to seek European Eldorado, find themselves stuck in Morocco. To handle this, the Moroccan state burns encampments of black people wanting to go to Europe: several deaths were recorded during these interventions in the forests north of the country.

The Government of PJD (Justice and Development) through a difficult crisis, and still fails to create a coalition government majority. This crisis is due to aggressive sabotage makhzen (the monarchy and his entourage), which is now expressed through the Independence Party and its secretary general Shabbat. While the party was a member of the government coalition with the PJD since the last election in November 2011, he decided to leave it a few months ago. Since it is tough to PJD, as the latter, despite his royalist zeal, did not meet the makhzen!
