Association of Moroccan Bloggers “Illegal”

At least, according to the Interior Ministry, which is attempting to close the movement.

Nevertheless, the Association has vowed to fight on, specifically within the following framework:

To renew our call to the Ministry of Interior in order to enable us our founding recite or a written refusal.

Our commitment to the right of exercising any civil and mediatic action that is guaranteed by all the national and international laws.

Our perseverance to continue our struggle to establish freedom of expression and creativity through the press using all legitimate ways and means to achieve our inalienable rights without concessions.

Our invitation to all national and international corporations to show more heed to the issue of restricting the associative work and civil society.

Our solidarity with all bloggers, journalists and Internet activists exposed to harassment renewing our call for the immediate release of their prisoners among them: the blogger Boubken Alyadib, manager of Internet Abdullah Boukfou.

Morocco is fast becoming Internet enemy number one and it’s quest to eradicate all mediums that facilitate freedom of expression remains oddly unreported.

As is observable in the case of Tunisia, the desire to sustain the illusion of democracy in West-friendly countries often is enacted to the detriment of the citizens experiencing the reality.

Democracy should be across the board: we cannot chastise Syria while indulging Morocco.

Censorship and persecution is unforgivable regardless of diplomatic relations; the game of favourites has to end.
