The Family of the Resistance and the Liberation Army commemorate Monday, the 65th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People, a glorious epic which testifies to the mobilization of an entire people behind their sovereignty for the restoration of freedom and independence.
This is an event that marked a milestone in the process of the national struggle led by Moroccans to deal with the aggressions of the occupier and to emancipate themselves from the yoke of colonialism, said in a statement the High Commission for former resistance fighters and former members of the Liberation Army.
It was a fierce fight that left the Moroccans in the history of the struggle of the peoples to free themselves from foreign occupation, an example of their attachment to the throne and their fierce defense of their sacred values , identity and national constants.
This battle was materialized by armed resistance (battles of Elhri, Anoual, Bougafer and Jbel Baddou), for the appearance of a political action that manifested itself during the opposition against the Dahir Berbère (1930), which was aimed at sowing of division among the Moroccan population, and also took the form of a series of reformist demands.
Nationalist action, persecuted the communicated, was crowned by the presentation of the Manifesto of Independence on 11 January 1944, a document written in perfect coordination between the late SM Mohammed V and the figures of the National Movement, which clearly illustrates the nationalist objectives and the strong determination to end the emancipation movement.
The visit made to Tangier by the late Sovereign on April 9, 1947, and his historical speech exploring the contours of the struggle for independence, was not the colonial authorities, who mobilized all means to put pressure on the symbol of resistance. In this way they attempted to isolate SM Mohammed V from his people and the leaders of the national liberation movement.
Such maneuvers were contradicted with fierce opposition to national opposition, with the motto being the return of the legitimate king and his family of exile and the proclamation of the independence of the country.
Demonstrations, protests and actions of resistance will multiply and spread and momentum of the national struggle will culminate in the beginning of the operations of the Liberation Army in Northern Morocco on October 1, 1955.
Faced with this revolution, the colonial government was forced to bow to the will and determination of the people and the throne and stopped its maneuvers, which made possible the triumphant return of the King and his illustrious family on November 16, 1955. The defense of territorial integrity continued with the r the restoration of the Tarfaya region in 1958 and Sidi Ifni in 1969, and the organization of the Green March in 1975 led by the late SM Hassan II, who paved the way for the restoration of the southern provinces.
The Resistance family seizes the opportunity to commemorate the commemoration of the commemoration of the King and the people for his attachment, loyalty and loyalty to the glorious Alawite throne and his mobilization behind His Majesty King Mohammed VI for the defense of the territorial unit, welcoming the initiative to give the southern provinces a high degree of autonomy, in the context of national sovereignty.
