March 21, 2020: Press release from Gadem

In this press release, the Anti-Racist Group for the Accompaniment and Defence of Foreigners in Morocco (GADEM) asked the government to authorise the automatic extension of the validity periods of the various documents authorising the residence of non-citizens until the end of the confinement. Gadem also asked through its communiqué to accompany particularly vulnerable migrants and refugees who live in very difficult conditions or in unhealthy housing. Measures must be taken to protect the population against the risks of coronavirus and ensure access to livelihood and care for the most vulnerable people. Finally, Gadem wished to recall that access to health services must be guaranteed without discrimination, as it is a recognized fundamental right and a public health issue.
