During the February 20 protests in Morocco, the state unleashed its security forces on the masses, leading to at least nine deaths and many arrests. One of those arrested and brutally tortured was a comrade of the Communist League of Action (CLA), the IMT in Morocco. We publish here an appeal from the comrades of the CLA. We ask all our readers to take part in the protest against these actions.
