The fourth National Council of Kadimoun and Kadiroun, which
coincides with the second anniversary of the birth of our movement, was
held on 14 December 2019 at the headquarters of the Moroccan
Organisation for Human Rights (0MDH) in Rabat under the theme “For a new
development model that guarantees the right to national wealth, basic
structures and territorial justice”.
The Board’s work began with an examination of the organic situation of the movement and a presentation of the various aspects of its programme. Following that, the territorial and provincial delegates as well as the representatives of Moroccans of the world from the Movement presented the results of their activities. The Council did not ignore the historical context characterized by the changes and tensions that many countries in the world are experiencing as well as the poor economic situation that augurs an imminent financial, economic and ecological crisis due to a worrying decline in political, economic and even cultural achievements. Aicha Alaoui, on behalf of the constituent committee, did not fail to express her deep concern about this alarming situation, which threatens not only the security and political stability of the country, already seriously weakened by the glaring lack of homogeneity in the governmental majority, but also social cohesion. The latter is dangerously threatened, especially with the resurgence of social inequalities and the aggravation of territorial disparities, adds the spokesperson of the Movement’s constituent committee, accompanied by Abderahim Bouaaza in his capacity as a member of the same committee. Aicha Alaoui especially stressed the seriousness of this situation in the most marginalized areas where poverty and precariousness abound, these are mountainous and rural areas, oases and all the landlocked localities of the steppes where many Moroccans are deprived of school, decent work and health services and where culture and sports are an inaccessible luxury. The Council’s concerns about this alarming situation were also widely expressed by regional delegates Rachid Belbukh and Hicham Hassnabi respectively, and by Movement representatives in France and Canada Ezzahra Derras and Rabia Chaouchi.
After a long, serious and responsible debate within the National Council, the human rights situation in Morocco was discussed, it is a worrying situation in view of what is being endured by sections of society, especially young people and women, as well as unemployed graduates, contract workers, employees and students. The Council reiterates its positions on the following:
– Congratulation and support for the appointment of the special commission on the development model to which it wishes every success;
– The need for the support of the national cause especially in this crucial context and its support for the Moroccan proposal concerning territorial integrity;

– Put an end to all forms of political dysfunction that undermine the credibility of institutions in the eyes of citizens;

– Its rejection of some provisions of the 2020 finance Act which have been setbacks in terms of human rights achievements and have undermined the dignity of Moroccan citizens, especially young people and women;
– The need for the urgent and democratic implementation of the provisions of the 2011 Constitution, especially with regard to advanced regionalization, governance and accountability by fighting against the resurgence of privatization at the expense of the public service;
