Thousands of students gathered in front of the parliament building in the capital Rabat on Monday, November 12, to denounce the government's decision to cancel the changeover to winter time; traffic was disrupted on Mohammed V Avenue. Protests also took place in other cities.
Further protests are possible in the coming days and weeks, along with associated transportation disruptions. While demonstrations have thus far been peaceful, clashes with police cannot be ruled out.
Several protests have taken place in the aftermath of the government's announcement to maintain summer time on October 26.
Individuals in Morocco are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution.
