For journalists covering Morocco

The pro-reform collective Mamfakinch has put together a press kit to encourage Western journalists to cover Morocco. It's reproduced below.

Mamfakinch (which in Moroccan Arabic means: we won’t give up) is a group of Moroccan activists and bloggers who support the pro-democracy movement “February 20.” Our group includes several online activists who speak French and English, in addition to Arabic and Tamazight (Berber). Mamfakinch is at the disposal of international journalists to answer their questions and put them in touch with local activists and committees affiliated with the “February 20” movement.

Please find, attached to this email, our first press release (in both English and French) on the pro-democracy movement in Morocco. For further information, please feel free to contact us at mamfakinch[at]gmail[dot]com.

Best regard,
