Morocco: Local Youth Movement Marks Anniversary

Morocco's youth-led February 20 Movement (M20F) will mark its second anniversary on Wednesday (February 20th) with a rally in front of parliament, Aufait Maroc reported.

On the eve of its first anniversary, M20F voiced its determination to hold Morocco's new government accountable for its promises. The movement now seeks to ride what it describes as rising discontent against the Islamist government amid a slowing economy, AFP reported.

"Citizens will realise that they need a new change," M20F Rabat co-ordinator Sanae Metaich said.
