Same Old Country

Laila Lalami, author of Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits and keeper of the blog formerly known as Moorish Girl, writes about the Nichane and Aboubakr Jamaï censorship cases for the New York Times and concludes, “Without freedom of expression, Morocco’s reforms are merely a varnish. Underneath it lies the same old country.”

That was exactly what I said to lebaroude on his blog.
The discussion was about freedom of speech, and Morocco’s changes.
I think also that it is the same old country, because of the absence of a real politic mouvement ..
It’s a pity ..
Another example : The IER, the amnesty about the dark years (les années de plomb) ..
People could talk about it, but the burriers are still out there..
Maybe no Justice, but it would be fair, if these people were not having any envolvement in the government or the state ..
Sometimes, I think in twenty years, another dark year, and another IER, asking people for forgiveness for amnesty .. :)

Ayoub.. remembers everything ;)
