Since August 2011, the Movement on the Road '96 Imider is a social movement which comes from the population of Imider in permanent sit-in on Mount Albban, the sit-in protest longer - it just started the fourth consecutive year - in the history of Morocco. The Movement on the Road '96, which represents the population of Imider (rural municipality in the province of Tinghir - Morocco south-east), is peacefully fighting since many years for the recognition of basic, social and economic rights of the local population, oppressed by the intensive exploitation on the territory of the silver mine largest in Africa, managed by the SMI, which is part of the ONA multinational controlled by Moroccan royal family. Imider’s territory suffers heavily from this exploitation, in terms of serious pollution of the environment by using dangerous subctances as Cyanide and Mercury (which hurts health, agriculture and livestock) and advance the desertification process. Since quite four years Movement on the Road '96 Imider organizes the sit-in and continuing protest marches against this serious situation of violation of human basics rights, social and economic rights, undergoing arbitrary arrests and any kind of intimidation by the Moroccan authorities. For the People's Climate Mobilisation we have organize a peaceful sit-in (since 2011...) to say NO to the politics of destroying our environment and against human rights violation. We invite all those who are sensitive to these issues to join it.
