Morocco demonstrations

Any experience of the threatened demonstrations in Morocco?

I will be travelling to Morocco with over 100 young students to work in the humanitarian sector. We will be in three different locations, but travelling through major cities by coach.

We have heard various rumours of unrest and demonstrations, but have been unable to gain confirmation of potential problems.

Our local guide is not very objective and tells us the King is great and how beautiful his country still is.

Any observations, advise much greatly appreciated please.

Need to make a decision in next 72 hours.

Hi I am in Rabat at the moment.

I will be putting up some photos in about 4 days or so from the demonstrations from Sunday. My blogs come up on the home page when I post them so keep an eye out.

It was nothing like Egypt which I was in during the first week of demonstrations there.
Very peaceful organised and the the police let it run freely. Just signs and a bit of chanting. Manly on Mohammed V street which is near the train station and post office.

I have not heard about demonstrations anywhere else in the country.
I'm traveling here for another week and don't have any concerns.

If there was to be problems it would be Rabat or Casablanca but I doubt it from what I saw on Sunday Reply to this

Here's the link to the photos. It was not that big really. It covered a block. Reply to this
