Fifteen miners have been arrested since then and are being brought to court accused of obstructing the freedom to work during their two day strike on the 10th and 11th of October. This struggle has raised a lot of sympathy amongst young people, school students and workers in the region, nationally and even internationally. The echo in the Moroccan media is as expected, very weak. The system multiplies the walls of silence surrounding it. It is a symptom of its fear of that exemplary battle.
