Morocco hosts seminars and vigils in solidarity with Palestinian people


RABAT, (PIC)– A group of civil organizations operating in Morocco on Friday launched events to commemorate the Palestinian Land Day, which falls on March 30.

The events started on Friday with a reception for the Palestinian activist Zaid Shuaibi, a member of the national committee for boycott, divestment and sanctions (against Israel), and an open meeting with activists in the central headquarters of the Moroccan Association for Human Rights in Rabat.

These associations intend to stage a vigil on Sunday in the Moroccan capital Rabat, and on Monday they will organize a seminar with participation of the Palestinian activist Zaid Shuaibi and activist Sion Asidon, in Marrakech.

They also called upon all human rights, women and political organizations and all the freedom fighters to take part in these events, in support of the Palestinian people’s struggle for their legitimate rights against the Israeli occupation and settlement activities.

The organizations participating in these actions include the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Initiative (BDS – Maroc), the Moroccan – Palestinian Solidarity Association, Moroccan Association for Human Rights, the Moroccan Observatory against Normalization, National Working Group for Palestine, the Moroccan Association for supporting the Palestinian struggle, and the National Union for higher education.

For its part, the al-Adl wal Ihsan group in Morocco called on all conscientious forces in the world, concerned with the Palestinian issue, to continue supporting the case and reveal the truth of the Israeli racism.

It urged in a statement on Friday published on its official website the activists and supporters of Jerusalem and Palestine to teach the nation’s youth about the Arab – Israeli conflict, to present to the young generations the Palestinian cities, villages and holy sites, and to continue organizing solidarity activities including marches and meetings.
