[A scene from the national strike today, 29 October 2014, in Rabat, Morocco. Image via Twitter.]

Morocco’s major labor unions have called for a general strike to take place today, on 29 October 2014. The appeal to action has called on a number of political parties, movements, and civil society groups to express their support and participate in the strike. Mobilizing among both the public and private sectors, the general strike is being organized in opposition to a number of reforms the current coalition government has proposed, including pension reform and raising the retirement age. The strike also takes aim at the steady rise in cost of utility services, food, and fuel. In this interview with Radio France Internationale, Jadaliyya Co-Editor Samia ...

“Hamel, Leave!”: The Men in Blue and the Fracturing of the Order

[Image of a police protest in Algiers. Image from Algérie-Focus]

On Tuesday 14 October, I received a text from a friend—an activist who lives in the center of Algiers: “Urgent: the police are marching on Algiers. They are protesting next to my apartment, this is the end!” The protests started in the basin of Ghardaïa, eventually reaching the capital. One might have the impression that the structure of power in Algeria is suddenly threatening to collapse. Surely, this social movement in particular raises important questions. In a country where the state struggles to contain a permanent but dispersed unrest, the men in blue play a key role in preserving the prevailing order. Should we thus conclude that this recent wave of protests ...

Moreover, this process has taken place ...
