Marrakech too marches

The uprising in the Middle East burgeoning democracy in Tunisia, leaving Caïro in chaos, turning Libya and Syria into warzones, seems to be unstopable despite all the sacrifices it costs.

'Beat terrorism with democracy', the Moroccan protesters chanted today at Djamaa El Fna, again turning a capital's square into a freezone. In Marrakech about 3000 people flooded the streets for freedom, women's rights, against terrorism and corruption.
King Mohammed VI denounced reforms,but he'll have to put his money where his mouth is. The bomb that exploded in the café Argana on April 28th and cost the lives of 17 people awoke fear that the authorities will stall reforms in the name of security.
