    From what I’ve seen, the protests in Morocco were not opposed by the government. Morocco is a constitutional monarchy and has a working government, complete with political parties and even organized labor. Mohammed VI seems like a fairly enlightened monarch: the constitution has been revised several times over the last few decades.

    Curiously, the Moroccan protesters are only asking for a new constitution, further limiting the power of the king, not an overthrow of the government, as in Egypt, Yemen, etc.Report
