Hundreds of trade unionists and activists from the UK have signed a petition demanding the release of the Rif movement prisoners in Morocco. Sally Hunt, general secretary of the UCU union has also backed the solidarity campaign, and sent a letter of solidarity to Morocco’s largest trade union federation, the UMT which has seen four of its activists in the Rif’s regional capital Al Hoceima arrested in the recent crackdown.
Leaders of the mass movement for social justice including singer Silya Ziani and unemployed activist Naser Zefzafi are among 200 detainees seized in police raids since the end of May.
