Morocco: Police clash with protesters in Nador

Police clashed with a number or protesters in the Moroccan city of Nador on Sunday, after a number of members of the Moroccan Association for Human Rights had planned a demonstration in solidarity with the ongoing protest movement in Jerada. The protest was called for via Facebook, and security forces reportedly dismantled the gathering before the rally began. A wave of protests had sparked... Еще in the Moroccan city of Jerada in December 2017 and have since been echoed in other cities. Demonstrators have been campaigning against the economic policy of the government, which encourages people to dig abandoned mines in dangerous conditions. The Jerada mine used to employ over 9,000 people before it closed in 1990. Despite the mine being shuttered, impoverished young people continue to brave the pits — dubbed «the mines of death» — to extract coal by hand to sell to local traders.
