Morocco: Protest supporting Palestine, denouncing normalization
Dozens of Moroccan rights activists protest in solidarity with the Palestinian people and denounce the Arab normalization with the Israeli occupation.
Dozens of Moroccan human rights defenders and activists staged a protest in front of Parliament in the capital, Rabat, denouncing the Israeli occupation's attacks on Palestinians, especially the attack on Palestinian worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque yesterday, Friday.
Dozens of activists of the Moroccan left and Islamic organizations met in response to the call of the National Action Group for Palestine and the Moroccan National Front to Support Palestine and Oppose Normalization, in order to declare solidarity with the Palestinians and denounce the Israeli aggression in occupied Al-Quds.
The participants raised Palestinian flags and chanted a number of slogans supporting the cause of the Palestinian people and denouncing Arab normalization with the Israeli occupation government, such as "Palestine is an entrustment and normalization is treason."

The coordinator of the Moroccan National Front to Support Palestine and Oppose Normalization, Al-Tayeb Madmadh, addressed the protesters by saying, "You truly are the free Moroccans," while describing the normalizers as "traitors" and expressing the Moroccan people's solidarity with the Palestinians.
The protesters also condemned the Israeli continuous practice of the so-called "administrative detention and policy of abusing prisoners", calling on the international community and the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court "to take immediate action to restrain the occupation from the massacres of demolition it is carrying out against the Palestinians in Al-Quds and the crimes of ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people."
The front also renewed its rejection of all manifestations of normalization in Morocco and announced its "continuous cooperation with the various societal forces opposing normalization in striving to expose its crimes, issuing a law that criminalizes normalization, and intensifying all forms of support for the Palestinian people and its steadfast resistance."
The Israeli occupation forces stormed Al-Aqsa Mosque, at dawn on Friday, and tried to completely empty it of the worshipers, which led to confrontations with the young men stationed there to defend it, causing more than 150 injuries.
