Moroccans demonstrate against poverty and repression


From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Moroccans demand action on jobs and terror arrests

Monday 23 January 2012

Two thousand people demonstrated against Moroccan king Mohammed VI and his government on Sunday in Casablanca’s working-class neighbourhood of Tacharouk.

They demanded the US-backed government tackle the country’s 31 per cent unemployment rate and release people arrested under anti-terrorism laws.

Five jobless university graduates set themselves on fire in Rabat last Wednesday.

Two protesters were badly burnt and are still in hospital.
