Since the fall of the Egyptian president, Moroccans have been planning a movement of their own. On February 20, 2011, (#Feb20) the “movement for dignity” protested the frustration of some Moroccans with a government they believe has done little to combat corruption. The protesters are demanding constitutional reform, the dissolution of parliament, and the lowering of food prices, among other things.
