Hirak detainees at the Tangier 2 prison have announced that they are joining the call for a symbolic hunger strike, to be observed from Wednesday to Thursday to demand the release of poltical prisoners in Morocco. Nasser Zefzafi’s father announced the decision Tuesday evening.

For Ahmed Zefzafi and Hirak detainees, this is a «peaceful stage of the struggle». It is also a response to the call launched by journalists Omar Radi and Soulaiman Raïssouni, as well as the Moroccan Association for Human Rights (AMDH), to celebrate the Human Rights Day.
