BBC News - Morocco protesters demand political change (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-12518116)

interesting, as more countries become caught up, it becomes more difficult to apply a single underlying reason for the protests, Morocco is not in the same kind of economic hardship or under the same kind of dictatorship as others. However, the support for democracy as an idea, and not so heavily dependent on domestic conditions, is becoming the dominating explanation imo

Mohammed the VI there is quite popular, I doubt these protesters have much support.
