Thousands demonstrate in Morocco`s largest city
Casablanca: About 6,000 Moroccans marched through downtown Casablanca calling for greater democracy and an end to corruption.
Sunday`s march by the February 20 movement was the largest in months and suggested the movement`s message of reform still has resonance among Moroccans.
King Mohammed VI has started his own reform process, and last week a panel of experts presented him with a series of constitutional amendments they say would bring greater democracy.
The movement`s weekly protests had been regularly attacked by police until a protester died allegedly from a police beating on June 02.
Unlike the popular uprisings sweeping other Arab countries, Morocco`s activists are not calling for the King`s ouster, just a limiting of his powers.
