The World’s Most Repressive Societies

Posted in info with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2009 by ecranga

I read a UN report on 2009 world’s most repressive societies : in order to make this list, the UN considers two kinds of rights : political and civil rights and rate the access of the people to these rights, 7 being the highest number, aka no access to any rights. I was shocked to see Morocco appear on that list. To be fair, its only western Sahara, but it is still a country geographically close to France where I live and also a highly touristic country where I thought the open borders to the influx of tourists and international trade would have a positive effect on the allpowering kingdom as well as guarantee a minimum of rights – both political and civil – at least thanks to the pressure of popular pressure from the tourists’ part, most of whom are coming from democratic countries.
