Today, Maati Mounjib, Moroccan/French academic was banned from leaving Morocco to France in order to seek medical care after his assets were frozen by the state, as a result of yet another bogus case against those exposing, documenting and investigating corruption and deconstructing the logical fallacies of a “Moorish” propaganda, fuelled by local, old settlers and Neo-settlers typologies of influencers. In retaliation against the unjust rule of law in the land of the fake rule of law, tainted with nepotism, authoritarianism, royal ire and pardons and corruption, Mounjib decided to go on yet another hunger strike.
Maati is known to have the capacity to mediate between the “left” and “islamist” currents. Hence, the Moroccan state prefers this type of troublemakers to be in a cell or live in a pseudo-state of freedom until jail time. Mounjib is a historian and one wonders what historical facts can be associated with a regime built around silencing any voice of reason, critical thinking and freedom. Morocco is a police state. Morocco is a dictatorship. Morocco is a large open air Oukacha where the master still wants slaves to remain silent.
Because despite the state spending gigantic amounts of money on propaganda, the truth is… Makhzen committed a myriad of unforgivable crimes after the fake reconciliation post-Lead Years (such as in the case of Mohamed Hajib, Moumni and Ali Aarass, Mohcine Fikri, Hayat…) and has exiled, jailed and silenced Youtubers, activists and journalists. This new state of repression and digital authoritarianism is utilising everything from the two official religions to lack of it, LGBTQ to State Feminism focused on bourgeois representations of the Moroccan woman, sports to arts and academia to diplomacy and western neoliberal elites. Even some far right figures in the Anglo-saxon world.
It is true that Moroccans lived through Fes in the 90s, Koumira in the early 80s and the Hiraks in Jrada, Sidi Ifni and the Rif: it did end up being a basic collective negative emotion, defining the essence of being ruled by the Alaouite Mafia: fear.
Fear leads one to reflect on the red lines drawn by the Makhzen as an apparatus for centuries and how history recorded the end of nation/states, empires and governments built on propaganda, silencing and fear. The end is nigh because the Alaouite Mafia is guilty of Hogra against millions, Herba of minors used in wars with the European Union, because of Omar Radi, Moul Hanoute, Moul Lcasque, Nouredine Laawaj, Suleimane Raissouni, Bouachrine, Anouzla, Zefzafi and Hirak detainees, Sahrawi detainees and basically all of the Moroccan population jailed by the criminal Makhzen. A big Oukacha named Morocco.
