Maroc-Presse (fl. c. 1930 - 1960) was a French language daily newspaper published in Casablanca that became known for objective reporting and an 'enlightened' editorial stance during the era of decolonization. It was purchased by Jacques Lemaigre Dubreuil, a hero of the Second World War and businessman, in the spring of 1955, who, in his first editorial as owner, stated that Maroc-Presse would encourage the free expression and exchange of ideas and committed to build a staff of 'independent, far-sighted, and non-partisan' individuals. Even before Lemaigre Dubreuil purchased Maroc-Presse, the paper had renounced the exchange of terrorist and counter-terrorist attacks occurring throughout Morocco, including in Casablanca. Lemaigre Dubreuil's innovations were a surprising success. The people of Morocco, of both French and Moroccan heritage, had never encountered anything close to its 'Open Forum'. Lemaigre Dubreuil and Maroc-Presse were advocating for a non-violent solution to the tensions between France and Morocco, and may have been on the right path. But, just past midnight in the middle of June, Lemaigre Dubreuil was murdered in a counter-terrorist attack leaving him with thirteen machine gun bullets in his back. He died on the way to the hospital. Lemaigre Dubreuil's death shined a light on the reality in Morocco and the problems there.
