On April 22, 2019, Monjib went on a 48-hour hunger strike. He is threatened with dismissal from his post at Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco, and from the civil service. Four years earlier, Maâti Monjib led a 24-day hunger strike, to defend his freedom of movement because he the government banned him from traveling. Following many interviews with international media and the organization of training sessions in the field of citizen journalism, he was prosecuted along with six other people for “threatening the internal security of the State.” The trial is still ongoing and Maâti Monjib is the subject of incessant state press campaigns of defamation and moral harassment in his workplace.
