The sacked Dewhirst workers in Morocco are building up support for their struggle. Messages from Spain, Uruguay, Belgium, the USA, Britain and Sweden have been a big morale booster for them. The conditions in the factory are atrocious. Please keep the solidarity and protest messages coming in.
We urge you to support this group of Moroccan workers who have been sacked simply for standing up for their rights. The British clothing manufacturer Dewhirst, linked to Marks and Spencer, pays Moroccan workers a pittance. Send protest messages and make them see that workers around the world will not accept such brutal policies.
We have received this report about the brutal repression at Sidi Ben Abdellah University last May which left 4 students dead. The news about these clashes have not been reported anywhere outside Morocco and the Moroccan press has given an extremely biased version of them. We urge our readers to express solidarity and spread the news of what actually happened.
On Saturday forty-one people were killed and many more were injured in
Casablanca, Morocco, in a terrorist attack which came only four days after the
synchronised suicide bombings on expatriate residences in the Saudi capital,
Riyadh. This striking event, and the other recent attacks, are clear indications that
the so-called "war on terror" was far from finished with the fall of Saddam
The new King Mohammed VI is fond of presenting an image of Morocco as a
southern Mediterranean country steadily moving towards modernity and democracy.
We asked two Moroccan Marxists to shed some light on these claims, which to many
ordinary people seem completely unjustified.
