    Declaración de la sociedad civil sobre el cannabis en Marruecos para la Comisión de Estupefacientes

    21 October 2017
    Article

    La siguiente declaración de Abdellatif Adebibe, pronunciada en nombre de la Confederación de Asociaciones para el Desarrollo de la Región Senhaja Rif, estaba prevista como un aporte de la sociedad civil al debate sobre el desarrollo alternativo y las políticas de drogas orientadas al desarrollo que tuvo lugar en una reunión entre períodos de sesiones de la Comisión de Estupefacientes en Viena. Abdellatif representó a los productores de cannabis en la UNGASS 2016, tras la reunión del Foro Mundial de Productores de Plantas Prohibidas que tuvo lugar en Heemskerk, Países Bajos, organizado por el TNI.

    Sin embargo, el video con la declaración no llegó a proyectarse debido a la objeción informal de una delegación nacional. El Transnational Institute y sus socios desean que se aclare el proceso que llevó a esta decisión. Es preciso insistir en la importancia fundamental de las voces de la sociedad civil en los foros internacionales. La decisión de impedir que se proyectara esta declaración no debería sentar precedente.

    Civil Society Statement on Cannabis in Morocco at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs

    21 October 2017
    Article

    The following statement by Abdellatif Adebibe of the Moroccan Confederation of Associations for the Development of the Senhaja Rif Region, was due to be screened as a civil society contribution to a discussion on alternative development and development-oriented drug policy at an intersessional meeting of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs in Vienna. Abdellatif represented cannabis farmers at UNGASS 2016, following the meeting of the Global Forum of Producers of Prohibited Plants in Heemskerk, the Netherlands, organised by TNI.

    The video and statement were not screened, following an informal objection by a country delegation. The Transnational Institute and its partners are seeking clarification about the process leading to this decision. The importance of civil society voices in international spaces cannot be over stated. The decision to prevent this statement from being screened should not become a precedent.
