Two major events marked the beginning of the week, for the Moroccan bloggers: The Green March and Saddam Hussein's death penalty. But only one event got the most attention. It's the first blog meeting held in Agadir last week end.
The Green March
Samir explains why is November the 6th a holiday in Morocco.
So today the Moroccan people have been celebrating the 31st anniversary of the Green March that helped the country peacefully retrieve it southern provinces from Spain under the Madrid accords signed in 1975 by Morocco, Spain and Mauritania .
As usual, Too Banal plays with the words, and the green March which in Arabic is “AL Massira Alkhadra” becomes La mass ira(Fr), which means the crowd will go.
Mohamed Laroussi‘s father died 14 years ago, and it was on November the 6th.
Laroussi celebrated Monday a march, not the green one, but the one his father took toward peace and eternal rest. He posted(Fr) a touching letter to his late father asking him to enjoy life in heaven.
It's a big mess down here, my beloved dad.
Admin-word warns(Fr) that it's just a matter of turns.

Myrtus calls the sentence The verdict
That is all I can think of calling this, the conviction of Saddam Hussein for the murder of 148 citizens of his country. Their crime? Being unlucky enough to live in a town where some tried to assasinate Saddam Hussein. They were murdered in reprisal.
Even though Attayeb entitled(Ar) his post not for the defense of Saddam, the words he used to describe the sentence show sympathy and affection for the Ex president of Iraq.
Agadir's blog meeting
Neither Saddam Hussein nor the Green March was as popular for the Moroccan bloggers as the first blog meeting in Agadir. Many(Fr) enthusiastic posts(Fr) about the event(Fr) that became Moroccan-Tunisian(Fr) with the presence of Adib(Fr) and Amine(Fr).
Ahmed wrote a long post(Fr) describing in detail the meeting, he definitely had very good time.
Bettar Nadia was as nostalgic as Ahmed, and depicted in detail(Fr) the two days meeting.
All those who participated in the meeting wrote the same sentence:
Merci les amis et a très bientôt, Inshallah
M.S.Hjiouj is finishing his first novel which took him one night to write(Fr).
Label Ash has a new look, more elegant and with more captivating posts.
Moudawanat aloustad ‘s latest post is an interesting(Ar) short anecdote about improvisation.
Coup de coeur
That's it for today. See you next Wednesday, Inshallah;)
