The problem of the research revolved around the protest movement of Jarada as a social act, in which both the economist and the politician overlap. To address this problem, the researcher analyzed the problem using a systematic combination of ethnography, critical discourse analysis and social history. The researcher analyzed the discourse of Morocco’s state on vulnerability, and investigated the rationale for shaping the policies pertaining to the mining fields. Also, he tackled the process of transformations in the field and the population of the study, and identified the factors that brought about these transformations. In addition, the researcher described the daily economic life of the mining population in the past and at present. As mentioned earlier, the protest movement was based on field work. Consequently, the researcher concluded that the movement was part of a socio-historical context that began with the creation of coal mines during the French colonial period.
