Moroccans Protest against High Prices.

On Sunday, protests erupted in numerous Moroccan cities as people rallied against rising costs and to mark the eleventh anniversary of anti-reform demonstrations.
Hundreds of protestors lamented the exorbitant cost of basic products in Rabat, shouting chants reminiscent of the “February 20 Movement,” according to an AFP correspondent.
The pro-reform and anti-corruption movement was born out of the Arab Spring uprisings that rocked the Middle East in 2011.
Dozens also rallied in Casablanca and Tangiers, according to videos posted on social media.
Drought has hurt the country’s economy and Moroccans are also feeling the pinch from high fuel prices.
Some 3.8 billion dirhams (over $400 million) are needed for flour subsidies alone in 2022, according to an economy ministry official.
