Suppression of News in Morocco
Morocco is one of the more oppressive countries in the Arab world, with little freedom of speech or the press. In addition there is vicious suppression of revolutionary movements and a large number of political prisoners. BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET will try to do what we can to bring to light information about this horrible situation.
If you know of other suppressed documents, news reports or international commentary that should be posted here, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

— NOTICE —
Due to the repressive legislation and judicial decisions in the United States, we at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET want to make it completely clear that we do not have any connection whatsoever with any political parties or organizations in Morocco, or in any other country for that matter. We do not aid, promote, assist, support, coordinate with, or provide any sort of services or advice to any party or organization in Morocco or elsewhere. However, we do support the right of free speech, and the right of the people in both Morocco and internationally to read the views and publications of suppressed individuals, organizations and parties there. And for this reason alone we are making copies of their documents available on this site.
