Rabat: Unemployed Teachers' Demo Attacked by Police

Dec. 22, 2010

Unemployed teachers beaten at protest in Morocco.

Today a group of several hundred unemployed people, mostly teachers, from
the ANDCM (National Association of Unemployed Graduates in Morocco) held a
protest in front of the Moroccan parliament in Rabat. It was also joined
by a group of students. The demo was dispersed by rioting police several
times, but protestors came back with street blockades. Police attacked the
peaceful protestors, mostly beating them in a brutal manner. The action
was cut short by thunderstorms.

The unemployed have been protesting for the creation of more jobs in the
public sector, in this case, in particular for teachers.
