4,000 Protesting in Rabat
"We Want Change NOW!"

Casablanca is the North African nation’s biggest city, with more than 4,000 people who came out demanding: "Freedom!" "Dignity!" "Justice!" according to reporters there.

1,000's of demonstrators in cities throughout Morocco are demanding reform of their oppressive government. They are demanding to at least limit the powers of King Mohammed VI.

It is estimated that between 3,000 and 4,000 people came to streets of the capital Rabat, shouting: "The people want change" - denouncing corruption and calling for a democratic constitution to be adopted.

Other Moroccan cities, including Marrakesh and the port of Tangiers have had demonstrations as well.

Third in line to the throne, The prince, said that people wanted to have "progress and political reform in a monarchical context" and that he will welcome the monarchy evolving along the lines of that of Spain or Britain, as long as they still have a kingdom in place.

What do you say about this? Are you going to just sit there? Or are you ready to write?

A lot of Moroccans are flooding youtube with their requests for change as well as Moroccans that are angry with the people speaking up wanting change. For the most part, Moroccans are satisfied with their King and do not want him removed. They just want the government to change and stop being so corrupt.
