Ten Moroccan women say Spanish authorities have ignored claims they were trafficked, assaulted and exploited

Last April, Samira Ahmad\* kissed her baby goodbye and boarded a bus, leaving her home in Morocco for the strawberry fields of southern Spain.In her bag was her Spanish visa and a contract that promised €40 a day plus food and accommodation. In the three months she’d be away, she hoped the pain of being separated from her family would be softened by the money she’d be sending back to them – a fortune compared to what she’d be able to earn at home.

A year on, and Ahmad’s life is in ruins. She is destitute, divorced and for the past 10 months has been living in hiding, surviving on handouts with nine other Moroccan women who – like her – claim they faced human trafficking, sexual assault and exploitation on the farm where they were hired to work. She says her biggest mistake – other than coming to Spain – was going to the authorities.

Lever de soleil à Fes, au Maroc


Les premières lueurs du jours apparaissent à l'horizon.
Les premières lumières de la ville aux cent mosquées s'illuminent.
Les fours brûlent les premiers morceaux de bois pendant que la #mosquée #Quarawine baigne de son aura la vieille #médina.
Dans un silence de plénitude, la médina se réveille comme à chaque matin.
Marchands et artisans commencent leurs journées avec le lever du #soleil, animant avec leurs produits et créations ruelles et murs.
Des murs et ruelles qui racontent 12 siècles d'histoire.

Je n’avais encore jamais pris de photos de la ville de #Marrakech. La semaine dernière, quelques instants après mon arrivée, je me dirige vers la place Jamaa el Fna. C’était le premier jour du printemps, il commençait à faire chaud… très chaud !

Sans trop réfléchir, je prends place dans la terrasse du café, en attendant cet instant qui se situe quelque part entre le jour et la nuit, juste après le coucher du #soleil.

J’avais envie de capturer la vie de cette place, et non la place elle même. Sans cette foule, sans ces #touristes, ces piétons, ces motocyclistes, et... Show more...

Que Sera Sera, l'aventure d'un bateau


« Que Sera Sera » C’est le nom de ce bateau échoué sur la plage de #Laayoune. C’était comme si le destin lui réservait la fin dictée par son nom. Que sera sera, et ce sera sur le fin #sable blanc des côtes du sud #marocain.

Je contemplais perdu dans mes pensées cette majestueuse #épave, l’imaginant sillonnant les courants de l’#atlantique.
