PROVERBIO INGLESE
There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.

Nulla esiste di buono o di cattivo, ma è il punto di vista che li rende tali

 

Movement on the Road '96 Imider eng

The Free Academy in Rome is involved in a project in support of the Movement on the Road '96 Imider operating in the municipality of Imider in the south-east of Morocco, between the High Atlas and Eastern Merzouga in the province of Tinghir. The information available on the web and their own facebook page are language Tamazight (Berber), Arabic and French rarely. That raises the Movement for a problem related to sharing with the international community of discomfort and news related to the development of the situation on the ground. The LAR - in agreement with the Movement - is committed to be a "sounding board" to give voice to the Movement on the Road '96 Imider opening a section dedicated to this project on our website and a dedicated facebook page, in which to publish (translated into Italian and English) documents, pictures and video.

 

Some things to know about the Movement on the Road '96 Imider

For about a year and a half (August 2011) the inhabitants of Imider complained about the poverty in which they find themselves and manifest every day against the exploitation of natural resources in the region, where there is one of the largest silver mines in the north-Africa, owned by the royal family and under the control of Société Metallurgique Imider (SMI), a subsidiary of the holding company ONA. The intensive exploitation of the mine started in 1969, did not result in any improvement of life in the neighboring settlements, still complain that the lack of basic infrastructure and violation of agreements on the use, concluded on several occasions between the mining company and the representatives of village.


At Imider there are no schools (except a small garrison basic), there is no electricity in most homes, the internet and even kiosks with newspapers, while the nearest hospital is located 200 km away (Ouarzazate). The excavation on the slopes of Mount Alebban, however, have resulted in the progressive depletion of aquifers - reducing by an average of 60% of the water supply to households in the area - as well as pollution of the land around the mine because of toxic products (cyanide and mercury) used for the treatment of the ore. Last year, some pastors have witnessed the death of the whole flock of sheep and rams that had been watered with contaminated water and the company had to indemnify them to avoid scandal, even small plots at the foot of the mountain seem doomed to due to the shortage of water and poisons from the mine
