Moroccans shout out: “Normalization is treacherous”
Demonstrators in Morocco protest normalization with “Israel", and affirm support for Palestinians.
Dozens of demonstrators protested outside Morocco's parliament against the kingdom's normalization of ties with the Israeli occupation on its second anniversary.
The protesters chanted slogans denouncing the Moroccan-Israeli rapprochement, reiterating their unwavering solidarity with the Palestinian cause.
Following a call by the "Moroccan Front in Support of Palestine and Against Normalization," people from all social classes joined nationwide demonstrations in nearly 30 cities, including Casablanca, Oujda, Meknes, Tangier, Larache, Khemisset, Agadir, and Khouribga, to express support for Palestinians and denounce Morocco's normalization of relations with “Israel”.
In the capital city of Rabat, demonstrators gathered in front of the Moroccan Parliament, chanting anti-normalization slogans and calling for the accord to be reversed.
The protesters held aloft signs that said in Arabic, "The fight will continue until the normalization agreement is revoked," and waved national Palestinian flags.
Tayeb Midhmadh, the Coordinator for the Moroccan Front in Support of Palestine and Against Normalization movement, which purportedly includes 15 political, union, and human rights organizations said that the message sent by the widespread demonstrations is that normalization with “Israel” is passionately opposed by the whole country.
It is worth noting that Rabat severed ties with “Israel” in 2000, following the outbreak of the second Palestinian intifada, but Morocco normalized ties with “Israel” in 2020, along with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
