Morocco: Nationwide teacher strike January 3

Teachers to stage 24-hour nationwide strike and sit-ins January 3; associated protest march planned in Rabat



Teachers across Morocco are expected to take part in a 24-hour nationwide strike on Thursday, January 3, after ongoing negotiations broke down between the government and teachers' unions. In addition to the work stoppage, organizers have called for sit-ins to take place in front of Regional Academies; associated demonstrations should be expected across the country. A protest march in the capital city of Rabat is also scheduled. An increased security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected surrounding any demonstrations.


All those present in Morocco are advised to monitor local developments, avoid all protests and large public gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home government.
