International Call in Solidarity with Hirak Political Prisoners in Morocco

Press release

A year ago, on October 28th, 2016 in the town of Al-Hoceima, Mohcine Fikri, fishmonger, was crushed to death in a garbage truck. His tragic death triggered the Hirak, the people’s protest movement that has been shaking Morocco since then. On this occasion, a call for international solidarity was launched to demand the immediate release of hundreds of Hirak political prisoners in Morocco. In just a few days, the call was signed by eighteen members of the European Parliament, eighteen members of national legislative assemblies, dozens of trade unions, dozens of academics and many public figures, including Noam Chomsky, Ken Loach and Arundhati Roy.

This call was launched by the Committee for solidarity with Hirak political prisoners based in Casablanca at a time when 37 Hirak political prisoners had been on hunger strike for over a month to denounce the repression. They have just suspended their strike, due to deteriorating health, but the demand of their liberation and the defense of democratic rights in Morocco remains no less important.

 

Call

The death on 28 October 2016 of Mohcine Fikri — a young fishmonger crushed while protesting the confiscation of his merchandise by officials in Al-Hoceima, a town of the region of northern Morocco known as the Rif — triggered a popular movement which has been shaking Morocco ever since. Over the past year, a vast number of Moroccans have come together in the Hirak, a peaceful movement calling for social justice and economic development.

The response of the Moroccan authorities has been brutal, killing another young man, arresting over 400 protesters, with over 300 of them kept in detention, including 15 minors and 7 journalists who were covering the events. The Hirak’s political prisoners, including key figures of the movement such as Nasser Zefzafi, are facing charges that could lead to long jail sentences, up to the death penalty. Since September, 37 of them started an open-ended hunger strike against their detention and the brutality of the crackdown.Their situation has become critical.

The Moroccans are standing up for social justice. It is their inalienable right to protest peacefully. We hold the Moroccan authorities responsible for the lives of the detainees and demand the immediate release of all Hirak’s prisoners and cessation of the repression of the popular protest.

Appel à la solidarité internationale pour la libération de tous les prisonniers politiques du Hirak

Communiqué de presse

A l’occasion de la commémoration du décès de Mohcine Fikri, vendeur de poisson mort broyé par une benne à ordures le 28 octobre 2016 à Al-Hoceima (Maroc) et du déclenchement du Hirak, le mouvement populaire qui secoue le Maroc depuis un an, un appel à la solidarité internationale a été lancé pour exiger la libération immédiate des centaines de prisonniers politiques du Hirak au Maroc. L’appel a été signé en quelques jours par dix-huit membres du parlement européen, dix-huit membres de législations nationales, des dizaines de syndicalistes, des dizaines d’universitaires et de nombreuses personnalités publiques, parmi lesquels Noam Chomsky, Ken Loach, Arundhati Roy.

Initié par le comité de soutien aux prisonniers politiques établi à Casablanca, cet appel a été lancé alors que 37 prisonniers politiques du Hirak étaient en grève de la faim depuis près d’un mois pour dénoncer la répression dont ils sont victimes. Ils viennent de suspendre leur grève, mais cela ne change rien, bien sûr, à l’importance de l’exigence de leur libération et de la défense des droits démocratiques au Maroc.

 

Appel

La mort le 28 octobre 2016 de Mohcine Fikri, un jeune vendeur de poisson broyé par une benne à ordure en tentant de récupérer sa marchandise confisquée par les autorités à Al-Hoceima, ville de la région du Rif, au nord du Maroc –a déclenché un mouvement social historique qui secoue le pays depuis lors. Depuis un an maintenant, un grand nombre de marocains se sont constitué comme « Hirak », mouvement pacifique réclamant plus de justice sociale et l’accès au développement économique.

La réponse des autorités marocaines a été très brutale, tuant un autre jeune homme et arrêtant plus de 400 manifestants- 360 sont encore en prison dont 15 mineurs et 7 journalistes qui couvraient les événements. Les prisonniers politiques du Hirak, dont les figures publiques comme Nasser Zefzafi, sont inculpés sous des lourdes charges et risquent de longues peines de prisons pouvant aller jusqu’à la peine de mort! En septembre 2017, 37 prisonniers politiques ont entamé une grève de la faim, mettant leur vie en danger pour dénoncer leur détention et la répression dont ils sont victimes. Leur état de santé est aujourd’hui critique. Certains d’entre eux ont été transportés à l’hôpital.

En manifestant pacifiquement, le peuple marocain s’est levé pour plus de justice sociale. Cela relève de son droit le plus absolu! Nous tenons les autorités marocaines pour responsables de la vie des prisonniers politiques du Hirak et demandons leur libération immédiate, ainsi que l’arrêt de toute répression contre le mouvement populaire.

نداء للتضامن الدولي من أجل إطلاق سراح معتقلي حراك الريف

 خبر صحفى

بمناسبة الذكرى الأولى لاستشهاد بائع السمك محسن فكري، الذي مات مطحونا في حاوية للنفايات يوم 28 أكتوبر 2016 بالحسيمة (المغرب) وانطلاق أولى شرارات الحراك بالريف، هذه الحركة الاجتماعية التي ازداد زخمها واستمرت لمدة سنة، في خضم تطورات الوضع بالريف أُطْلِق نداء للتضامن الدولي وللمطالبة بالإفراج الفوري عن المئات من معتقلي الحراك بالمغرب، وقع على النداء طرف ثمانية عشر عضوا بالبرلمان الأوروبي، ثمانية عشر عضو من برلمانات محلية للدول الأوروبية، عشرات من النقابيين وعشرات من الأكاديميين وشخصيات عمومية متعددة، من بينهم نعوم شومسكي و كين لوتش وأروندهاتي روي.

وبدعوة من لجنة دعم معتقلي حراك الريف بالدار البيضاء، انطلق هذا النداء بعد مرور أيام عن دخول 37 معتقلا من معتقلي حراك الريف في إضرابهم عن الطعام الذي دام لأزيد من شهر، تنديدا بوضعهم داخل السجن وكذلك تنديدا باستمرار المقاربة الأمنية التي استعملتها الدولة المغربية في التعاطي مع الملف، واستمرار الاعتقالات لمدة تزيد عن ثلاث أشهر، وبعد أن ساءت أوضاع العديد منهم صحيا، أوقف معتقلو حراك الريف إضرابهم، في انتظار تطورات الوضع، لكن هذا لا يغير بطبيعة الحال من أهمية مطلب إطلاق سراحهم إيمانا بعدالة مطالب الحراك، وكذلك دفاعا عن الحقوق وعن الديمقراطية في المغرب.

 

نداء للتضامن مع حراك الشعب المغربي

بعد وفاة الشاب محسن فكري في 28 أكتوبر 2016، مطحونا في محاولة منه لاسترجاع بضاعته من السمك التي احتجزتها السلطات في مدينة الحسيمة، عرفت منطقة الريف في شمال المغرب حراكا اجتماعيا لا يزال مستمراً. ومنذ ما يقارب السنة وأعداد غفيرة من المغاربة تشارك في حراك الريف، هذا النضال السلمي الداعي لتحقيق العدالة الاجتماعية والتنمية الاقتصادية.

كان ردّ السلطات المغربية عنيفاً، تمثل في قتل شاب آخر واعتقال أكثر من 400 متظاهر، وقد زاد عدد المسجونين عن 300 سجين من بينهم 15 قاصرا و7 صحفيين كانوا يقومون بتغطية أحداث الحراك.

هؤلاء المساجين السياسيين، وبينهم بعض قادة الحراك أمثال ناصر الزفرافي، يواجهون تهم خطيرة تصل عقوباتها إلى مدة طويلة من السجن، بل إلى الإعدام. أمام هذا التعسف وسلب الحريات يخوض 37 من معتقلي الحراك إضرابا عن الطعام أدى إلى تدهور حالتهم الصحية بشكل خطير، وقد تم نقل بعضهم إلى المستشفى.

يطالب الشعب المغربي اليوم بالعدالة اجتماعية، وحقه في الاحتجاج السلمي حق غير قابل للنقض. نحمّل السلطات المغربية المسؤولية الكاملة عن سلامة المعتقلين، ونطالب بإطلاق سراح كافة معتقلي الحراك على الفور والتوقف عن قمع النضال الشعبي.

Appello alla solidarietà internazionale per la liberazione di tutti i prigionieri politici del Hirak

Comunicato stampa

Il 28 ottobre 2017 è il primo anniversario del decesso di Mohcine Fikri – il venditore di pesce morto schiacciato in un autocompattatore il 28 ottobre 2016 ad Al-Hoceima (Marocco) – decesso che ha segnato l’inizio del movimento per la giustizia sociale Hirak. In questa occasione è stato lanciato un appello alla solidarietà internazionale per esigere la liberazione immediata delle centinaia di prigionieri politici del Hirak detenuti in Marocco. In pochi giorni, l’appello è stato firmato da diciotto membri del parlamento europeo e di parlamenti nazionali, decine di sindacalisti, decine di accademici e numerose personalità pubbliche quali Noam Chomsky, Ken Loach e Arundhati Roy. In Italia hanno firmato, tra gli altri, Gianfranco Bettin, Erri De Luca, Paolo Ferrero e Moni Ovadia.

L’appello è stato lanciato dal Comitato di solidarietà ai prigionieri politici del Hirak, con sede a Casablanca. Al momento del lancio dell’appello, 37 prigionieri politici del Hirak erano in sciopero della fame da un mese per denunciare la repressione di cui sono vittima. I 37 hanno appena sospeso lo sciopero della fame, ma ovviamente questo nulla toglie all’importanza della necessità di esigere la loro liberazione e di difendere i diritti democratici in Marocco.

 

Appello

Il 28 ottobre 2016, il giovane venditore di pesce Mohcine Fikri moriva schiacciato in un autocompattatore mentre protestava contro la confisca della sua merce da parte della polizia di Al Hoceima, città della regione settentrionale del Marocco nota come il Rif. La sua morte ha scatenato un movimento popolare che continua a scuotere il Marocco. Nel corso dell’ultimo anno, moltissimi marocchini si sono uniti nel Hirak, un movimento pacifico che chiede giustizia sociale e sviluppo economico.

L’unica risposta delle autorità marocchine, poste di fronte alla grandezza del movimento, è stata la repressione. Un secondo giovane è stato ucciso, più di 400 manifestanti e attivisti sono stati arrestati, e più di 300 sono ancora in carcere. Tra questi ultimi ci sono anche 15 minorenni e 7 giornalisti che si sono occupati del movimento. I prigionieri politici del Hirak, tra cui figure chiave del movimento come Nasser Zefzafi, affrontano ora pesanti accuse. Rischiano lunghe condanne al carcere e persino la pena di morte. In settembre, 37 prigionieri hanno iniziato uno sciopero della fame a tempo indeterminato per protestare contro la loro incarcerazione e contro la brutalità della repressione. La loro situazione è ormai critica e alcuni sono stati ospedalizzati.

Il popolo marocchino si è sollevato per la giustizia sociale. Protestare pacificamente è un suo diritto inalienabile. Le autorità marocchine sono responsabili del fatto che le vite dei prigionieri politici siano ora in pericolo. Chiediamo la liberazione immediata di tutti i prigionieri del Hirak e la fine della repressione della protesta popolare.
