A large concentration convoked by the protest movement of Morocco was programed for Monday, on the day of the Aid al Fitr, the final party of the Ramadan, in the city of Al Hoceima. But the security forces, deployed in big numbers, used force to disperse the protest.

Police has “completely blocked Al Hoceima” and “multiplied the amount of controls” on the roads that lead to the city, the epicenter of a pacific protest movement which has been shacking the north of the kingdom from over eight months, the resistance movement reports.

In Ajdir, near Al Hoceima, “clashes exploded between the security forces and the manifestants who wanted to reach Al Hoceima”, they added and listed the wounded protesters and the dozens who were detained.

In Al Hoceima, hundreds of protesters managed to concentrate but were “brutally repressed by security forces”, the same source stated.

Protesters are now mobilizing to claim for the liberation of the “hirak” detainees, which is the name given to this movement which claims for more development for this marginalised region.
