A general strike and rallies take place in the Moroccan city of al-Hoceima to demand the release of anti-establishment activists.


A general strike in the northern Moroccan city of al-Hoceima has been widely followed amid daily protests to demand the release of dozens of anti-establishment activists.

Almost all shops in the city centre were closed and nearly 2,000 people took part in a peaceful march through the streets of the nearby Sidi Abed neighbourhood. One striker cited by AFP news agency said it was “a message to our King Mohammed VI.”

Nasser Zefzazi, the lead organiser of months of rallies against alleged corruption and abuses in the region, was arrested on Monday on charges of launching “an attack on internal security.”
