Morocco’s uprisings and all the king’s men – Features – Al Jazeera English.

Please read this article on yesterday’s protests.  There were nearly 20,000 people who marched in Safi, where the man was killed, but here in Rabat only a few thousand.

The street we marched down is called Mohammed V, not VI.

Concerning the upcoming referendum and constitution vote, a union of lawyers announced that the will not support the new changes drafted by the king but that they are instead backing those as presented by the Feb 20 movement.

One thing I did not appreciate at yesterday’s protest: a group of people burning an Israeli flag. This act was clearly not a part of the Feb 20 movement, and it disgusted several people, as such an act undermines a peaceful march. Speaking of undermining, some of my friends noted that the small group who did this may have been encouraged by some of the higher-ups in an effort to slander the movement.
