Press sidewalk: The brutality of the Algerian army increases the tension in the Polisario camps

Reading the articles of some of the weekly newspapers that we start from the “press week”, in which it was stated that a leaked document about the secretariat of the political organization of the “Polisario” revealed the hijacking of the car of the prominent leader in the front, Sidi Wakal, who holds the position of what they call the “National Director of Documentation and Security”, known for short as “DDS”.

According to the same platform, well-informed sources from inside the Tindouf refugee camps revealed that the “Polisario” Front accuses opposition parties of being behind this operation, which it described as “dangerous, affecting the security and stability of the camps.”

The same sources did not hide the expansion of instability and the escalating tension, due to unfair rulings that had been issued against a number of traders of what is known as the “living economy,” after a large number of them were arrested by the Algerian army at the borders of the camps and brought before the courts on heavy charges.

Among the same weekly articles, Al-Naam Mayara, the Speaker of the House of Councilors, is preparing to announce the bankruptcy of the advisors’ retirement system, similar to the previous bankruptcy of the Parliamentary Representatives Pension Fund.

“Al-Weba Al-press” also published that the Court of Cassation issued a ruling to annul the appeal ruling issued against Omar Hujaira and Abdel Nabi Baawi, and to refer the case file to another court.

According to the same source, the decision of the Court of Cassation is based on the merits and arguments contained in the appeals files that were drawn up in the court in accordance with the law, through which the court was convinced of the necessity of annulling the appeal ruling.

As for Al-Watan Now, it has published that stadiums are an encouraging factor in creating violence, knowing that the causes of riots in stadiums are difficult to limit to sports, given that sports are only an area that helps young people to unload violence and their negative energy.

In the same regard, Moncef El Yazghi, a researcher in sports politics, stated that “the social aspect is not a major reason for the stadium riots; Because it means that violence will take place in all matches, and therefore the theory of social factors for me is wrong, because many societies in African countries live in poverty more than Moroccans and they have a lot of social pressure, but the phenomenon of riots in them does not exist.”

Journalist and analyst Hisham Remram stated that the phenomenon of riots in stadiums is difficult to limit to what is sports, given that sport is only an area that helps young people to unload violence and their negative energy. For his part, Ahmed Misari said that one of the reasons for the sports riots is the public’s use of the stadiums’ spaces to express their protest and social demands. Rasheed Amshnouk, a researcher in sociology, said that what happened reveals the “repression” of these minors and young people towards society.

For its part, Al-Ayyam published that the Moroccan government began to legalize dealing with cryptocurrencies to prepare for entering the Bitcoin era, after it had been reluctant for five years. Morocco was the first African country to quickly ban cryptocurrency trading in 2017; Because of the risks it poses in money laundering and terrorist financing, according to the justifications of the Ministry of Economy and Finance and Bank Al-Maghrib at the time, before Nadia Fattah Alaoui announced, a few days ago in Parliament, the beginning of lifting the ban.

The same weekly reported that the creator and writer Abdelkader Chaoui considered that confronting circumstantial crises at the popular level is not affected in terms of the situation or reaction by the performance of successive governments, because the nature of the crisis in Morocco is structural, and a reflection of deeper crises. Al-Shawi emphasized that insisting on societal peace, for example, is nothing but a policy for managing crises using all means of encouragement that often succeed in convincing the correctness of that policy.

The former political analyst and diplomat recorded that the needy Moroccan citizen stands today in front of the crisis as a spectator of various perceptions that reach his awareness and hearing, and he is always the consumer, without critical attention, to all the discourses that try to persuade him to be neutral or to surrender to the ability to absolve him from thinking about the solution itself.

Jama’i Muhammad al-Hashimi said, “The current Morocco, with its new social forms that shock our revenues and our visions that were formed in the midst of the Cold War, is more superior and more effective.” He emphasized that Moroccan youth are fighting their battle in their own way and building relationships outside of traditional “templates”. According to Al-Hashemi, the lack of popular response to most manifestations of the social crisis does not mean a backwardness or a decline in the level of awareness, as much as it expresses a greater maturity of the new generations and a realism different from the myths of previous generations.

Professor Moulim Al-Arousi also stated that the special and difficult situation that Morocco is going through requires that the owners of capital demonstrate their patriotism in concrete terms, and that the existing social patience towards the various price increases will not last, and the political decision makers should think about the crisis.

The same researcher added that the economic situation that the middle classes have been exposed to will lead to a deep recession, with which prosthetic solutions that try not to touch butane gas and crumb of bread, which the government considers a red line, will not work, considering the middle class is the “dynamo” and producer and distributor of wealth.

Al-Ayyam also wrote that Eid al-Adha this year was marked by drought and the skyrocketing price of energy materials at a time when the world was looking forward to recovering from the Corona pandemic and its harsh remnants at various levels, pointing out that this holiday in Morocco took another dimension outside its religious dimension in Society is manifested in a set of individual and collective manifestations and behaviors that require reading and contemplation.

In the same context, Mustafa Shakdali, a researcher in sociology, associates a set of aspects of the celebration of Eid al-Adha in Morocco with the formation of the village community, which governs its ways of performing a number of rituals, including religious, despite the transformations he witnessed, especially related to the space represented by moving from the village. to the city.

In the same dialogue, Shakdali touched on the changes witnessed by the Eid al-Adha rituals, which are related in large part to the composition of Moroccan society and cultures, which have been reshaped in recent years at the level of social media.
