This 20 June 2011 video is called Thousands protest Moroccan king’s reform plan.
From Global News in Canada:
Four people have set themselves alight in Morocco since last week – mimicking the tactics of anti-government protesters in Tunisia – and the Moroccan monarchy has responded by boosting food subsidies.
Popular unrest has already unseated the autocratic Tunisian government, and protests are widespread in Egypt.
From CBC in Canada:
Is it merely poverty that’s driving these demonstrations or political repression? Has Islamic fundamentalism played a role? And what part has social media played in advancing the agenda? CBC News spoke to Laila Lalami, a Moroccan-born novelist and political commentator who has written on the Middle East for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Nation magazine, about the social and political forces behind this wave of dissent.
