Nawal Benaissa

Morocco

Hounded for demanding a better life

Nawal Benaissa speaks out for social justice and better health care services in her region, Rif, in Morocco. She’s been on peaceful protest and campaigned for change on social media. However, she’s been harassed by the Moroccan authorities in an attempt to silence her. They arrested and held her in custody for four times in just four months, and demanded to close her Facebook profile which had 80,000 followers. In February 2018, she was given a 10-month suspended sentence and a fine for “inciting to commit an offence”. She’s appealing the verdict but the intimidation continues. She’s fled to another city to escape the constant surveillance.
