"In Geneva, we were, along with other Moroccan NGOs carrying the message of a strong Kingdom through its achievements, proud of its diversity, with credible institutions that look to the future with serenity," said Moulay Ahmed M'ghizlat who represented CORCAS at this session, with Miss Saadani Maalainine.
This session was marked by two reports, one on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women and the other on cultural rights, which have clearly marked this amazing trajectory, consolidated by the new Constitution, which has been acclaimed by the Moroccan people, he said, stressing that the report of the United Nations Independent Expert in the field of cultural rights, Farida Shaheed welcomed CORCAS experience in promoting cultural rights.
The Moroccan participation was also remarkable in the various debates of the session focusing on the achievements of the Kingdom and the various projects launched, particularly with the advent of the new constitution, which came to strengthen the irreversible choice for democracy and rule of law, he added.
Participation in this debate was also reflected, he said, by a learning effort with stakeholders to explain the participatory democratic process that characterized the writing of the Moroccan constitution, whose preamble is instructive: "Sovereign Muslim state, attached to its national unity and territorial integrity, the Kingdom of Morocco intends to preserve, in its fullness and diversity, national identity, one and indivisible. Its unity, forged by the convergence of its Arab Islamic, Amazigh and Saharan- Hassani components, was nourished and enriched with African, Andalusian, Mediterranean and Hebrew tributaries. "
These explanations to the various interlocutors focused on the development effort in the southern provinces, in terms of education with a wonderful network of schools and colleges, health care with adequate sanitation facilities, network road, housing which is also a component of human rights and where achievements are also important.
In addition, there were also panels on the plight of human rights in the Tindouf camps, particularly women and children and their needs for education, he said.
This awareness work included autonomy in the southern provinces, its philosophy and inclusive approach, which provides wide powers to the Sahrawi people to manage their own affairs, living in dignity and freedom to in Morocco.
"The CORCAS action seeks reconciliation to give meaning to our autonomy plan and achieve a reunion between members of families torn apart by vain ideology," he said.
Staying more than 35 years waiting mirages of separatism came to nothing and autonomy requires a reconciliation of partners, said Moulay Ahmed M'ghizlat, saying that CORCAS members have established contacts with African, Swiss, American and European NGOs that are sensitive to this issue and working on this matter.
