New book by Zakya Daoud
The journalist-writer Moroccan woman, Zakya Daoud, has published a new book titled “Moroccans of the other bank”. The new 232-page book, published by Tarik editions, presents the social problems of Moroccan expatriates in France, and tells the story of the "Migrations and Development" Association, which operates mainly in the Taroudant region of Morocco.
The Association was established in 1987 by Jamal Lahoussain, a trade unionist who fought against the closing of the factory where he had worked for 15 years in France. After having lost his battle, Jamal went on to encourage his compatriots to return to their homeland and invest their retirement pensions in projects of development in Morocco.
EMarrakech reports that the book was launched with a signing ceremony event by the author (June 20), at the Kalila Wa Dimna bookshop, in Rabat.
