The U.S. Mission in Morocco informs U.S. citizens in Morocco of a demonstration scheduled for Wednesday, August 09 starting at 7:30 pm in Rabat in front of the Parliament building to protest the recent death of a young man who was unfortunately injured during previous demonstrations in El Hoceima on July 20th.
You should avoid the area, maintain a high level of vigilance, take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security, and monitor local news stations for updates.
These protests are not directed at the U.S. government nor individual U.S. citizens. However, even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. Avoid areas where demonstrations are taking place and exercise caution when in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
