Morocco: Protests planned in Rabat June 11

Protests planned in Rabat on June 11 in solidarity with the Rif movement

12 juin 10h29 UTC
TIMEFRAME expected from 9/6/2017, 12h00 until 11/6/2017, 11h59 (Africa/Casablanca). COUNTRY/REGION Rabat


A protest in support of the Rif movement has been planned by multiple groups in Rabat on June 11. The demonstration is scheduled to begin at 12:00 (local time) in Bab el Had, and end at the Moroccan parliament building in the early evening. The number of demonstrators is uncertain, however the protest has been actively promoted through social media.

Transportation disruptions are likely in central Rabat. Additional supporting demonstrations are possible, and may occur throughout Morocco.


This current wave of demonstrations began on May 18, when thousands of protesters took to the streets of Al-Hoceima. Protests have continued throughout the Rif region. A women's protest in Al-Hoceima was ended by security forces on Saturday, June 3, with police officers encircling hundreds of women demonstrating for increased jobs, healthcare services, and infrastructure in the northern region. On the night of Sunday, June 4, hundreds of protesters demonstrated in Al-Hoceima and other towns throughout the Rif region, marking the ninth night of protests calling for the release of Nasser Zefzafi, the leader of the "Popular Movement" organization. Around 40 people had been arrested during anti-government protests in the north.


Individuals in Morocco are advised to avoid any form of public demonstration or public gathering and to keep abreast of the general climate.
