Moroccans Rally to Demand Reforms

Thousands of Moroccans have staged a rally in the country's biggest city, Casablanca, to demand reform and more social justice.

Protesters chanted "no to corruption", "end social injustice", and "the people want an end to authoritarianism," AFP reported on Sunday.

The demonstrators also called for the abolition of article 19 of the constitution, which makes King Mohammad VI the highest religious authority in the country.

Protesters also held rallies in the capital city of Rabat, calling for “change, freedom and the dignity of the Moroccan people.”
